Hi all!

For Eriozona erratica the R3 doesn't seem to be correctly bent, so I don't find any but Parasyrphus looking similar to this. Can it be determined by this picture?

Approx. 12 mm

13.8.2023, Austria, State of Salzburg, Pongau region, near Mt. Taferlnock, about 2250m a.s.l., coordinates approx. 47.21685, 13.45756

Hello Rupert,

a Syrphus female. Doesn't seem to have hairy eyes, so not S. torvus. If you have a photo, which shows the hind femora colour, we can tell whether it is S. ribesii (femora nearly completely yellow) or S. vitripennis (femora mostly dark). From the general expression I'd vote for ribesii.

Parasyrphus are smaller and predominantly spring species.
Best regards,

Thanks Jürgen!

Me stupid. Out of the mountains, I usually recognize it... maybe the tour was too exhausting.

Got no other picture, so it will stay sp.
Best greetings

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

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