I'm struggling to identify this female from the keys in S&F. Thought it might belong to the Platycheirus subgenus but seems rather big ( wing length 10 mm ). I've still got it if any other views would help.
Thanks
Peter

Hi Peter,
It is in Platycheirus peltatus group, probably P peltatus itself,
Cheers, Mick
