Another Cheilosia sp. in my garden yesterday (quite similar to Pipiza to me, which i first thought it was), but maybe different to the C. albitarsis identified on this site a few days ago?. as legs look all black.

7.5.10 Wiltshire, southwest UK.

Looks like a male Cheilosia variabilis.

OK, many thanks. There seem to have been a few Cheilosia spp. around recently of very different sizes, but they still all look very similar to me!
