Hoverfly1 ID Please? (Woodwalton, Cambs., UK) (1 Viewer)


Well-known member
Hi All

Green End Lane for anyone local is a great spot for various insects. With the local reserve shut, this was my first and only stop of the day.

This one is new to me and I think it is Dasysyrphus albostiatus - grey vertical stripes on thorax and black stigma on wings.

Could someone please confirm ID?

Thanks, Gareth
