Mechernich-Satzvey (Germany), 1 May 2022. This copula was found in a “wild” corner of our garden bordering the lawn on the leaves of a columbine plant. Other plants in the vicinity are coltsfoot, marguerites (both just emerging) and red clover as well as various grasses. To me Tephritis neesii seems to come close. I’d be grateful if you could check the ID.

Hello Val,
thank you very much for your confirmation of Tephritis neesii . More individuals of this species could be observed today, all of them on marguerites, some of them involved in mating activities (see following pictures).
Best regards,
Hans Theo
