Posted by nowaytofly on 03-08-2023 21:45

Hi, today I got this fly
... on a daucus carota, near a small river in Lower Saxony, near City of Celle. The Syrphidae is about 12mm (??) in length.
Today means 2023, August 3rd.
Many thanks. Norbert

I wunder, why no expert is answering you. May be, that it is to easy for them.
van Veen in "Hoverflies of Nothwest Europe writes about Myathropa: ... readily recognizable ...

i am pretty sure it can't be anything else.
