I have some doubts about this Syrphidae: I thought it was Epistrophe eligans, but it has too many black stripes on the abdomen... What could it be?

the bands in Epistrophe eligans are rather variable, but the species is still unmistakeable.

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