Hello everyone - after lurking on this site for some time, I have at last plucked up the courage to post! Can anybody give me any help on identifying this hoverfly? Possibly Neoascia sp?

Hi There,
Sorry, but it is not any Neoascia Species!
It is in fact Syritta pipiens.
If you have a copy of Alan Stubbs & Steve Falks
book: British Hoverflies, you can find a picture of it
on page 443, Illustration No 8 a&b.
I hope that helps, all the best, Mick.

Thanks for that, Mick ... I had come to this conclusion myself after being given some duff information elsewhere .... Confused
