Small dark syrphid with whitish markings on the abdomen and a shiny thorax. Photographed on chickweed in our garden in Mechernich-Satzvey (Germany) on 20 April 2022. Is ID possible? To me Melangyna umbellatorum seems to be an option. Thank you very much for your help.

Hello Roger,
thank you very much for identifying this fly. I now see the distinctive clump of hairs on the front legs (pictures 1 and 5).
Kind regards,
Hans Theo

Hello, I'm looking for literature on chironomid larvae that are able to survive after being entrapped in ice for at least several days . So far I've only found literature on Eretmoptera murphy
