Hi Rui!
The top picture looks like Chr. festivum. The second like a Chr. intermedium. Please collect them next time you see them (and any other Syrphids too Smile ).

Thank you, Andre Smile

Actually, I collected the two specimens. I just put them in alcohol, but one of them had been dead for more or less 24 hours and I'm not sure if it was too long without it being in alcohol.

Just one question: are there any problems in putting more than one insect in the same jar?

No problems, if they're from the same locality on the same date! Wink
Just occasionally, filling a jar with flies will dilute the alcohol so much that they are not properly preserved. Sad This is only likely to happen if the volume of flies equals the volume of alcohol.

Ehh. slight correction to the identifications.
Top one is C. intermedium and the second one is C. octomaculatum, to my opinion.

But a thread of mine with six species in the same genus (Bombus) and same locality and same date, was closed before begin... I thinks that is better post one species per thread...

I'm very confused :-S.
John, can you explain me your hunch? What caracteristics you see to separate the species?

The abdominal pattern of the first species doesn't fit C. festivum, the spots are to broad. The fact that it has a dark band along the entire front of the wing and the glabrous look of the abdomen and the relative short abdomen make it C. intermedium for me.

The second one, if you closely at the fourth tergite, you see a very small yellow band from the yellow spot to the front of the tergite. Not the lateral side itself, but just before, this is characteristic for C. octomaculatum.

I jope this answers your question
