This hoverfly was also on a flowering plant along the side of the road in the Nockberge (Carinthia/Austria) at approx. 1700 m.

My guess is Parasyrphus annulatus.

Syrphus ribesii is probably correct because the legs are yellow and in Parasyrphus annulatus the tibia and tarsi of the anterior and middle pairs are yellow.
Best regards, Heiko

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
