Hi All

Another hoverfly that I haven't seen before.
I think it is Helophilus trivittatus (Large Tiger Hoverfly).

Could some confirm or put me straight please?

Yours, Gareth

Correct, but the nice compilation in the identification aids of https://www.natur...rivittatus shows which characters should be checked and photographed to safely discriminate between the three Helophilus species.

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
