I was following some S.ribesii round a garden and came across what I think is Eupeodes corollae. I would appreciate a second opinion.

Hi Dave,
It looks like a Melangyna Species to me,
Probably M lasiophthalma?
All the best, Mick Parker.

The specie is not very clear. Melangyna was my first thought too but still don't you think the specie is not a bit to brought for that?
As I always say you need to collect species for this reason.

regards,

No! I dont think it is too "Brought" at all!
However, it does highlight the limited use of
insect photography, Shocked
you simply cannot get certain identification of most
species with a camera, although it will useful as an
introduction to insects.
Blood letting with the Net! is by far the best!
Good Bug Hunting! Twisted Evil
All the best, Mick.
