Thread subject: :: Which Eupeodes sp. ?

Posted by rth69 on 27-04-2022 16:08

I picked up this Eupeodes sp. today in our garden near Hannover (Mittellandkanal nähe). Can anyone tell me the exact species ? I am wavering between Eupeodes corollae and Eupeodes luniger.

Hello Rainer,

this should have better been posted in the Syrphidae subforum.

It is a male Eupeodes luniger (spots not reaching the tergite margins).
