Good evening all,
Could it be that this is Eristalinus aeneus ? I have found a comment by Gerard on, about it being an introduced species in the USA : this picture was shot in Boston, Massachussett, in July 2005.

For North-America I see only two species listed: aeneus and taeniops.
So this must be aeneus.
Interesting coloration!

Thanks for the info Andre. I am afraid the flash has killed the picture, but the conditions were hard indeed : the picture was shot on Little Brewster Island, at the mouth of Boston harbor, and the Atlantic wind was blowing its best, making a still shot impossible !

Hi. Please delete all photos of E. carrapateira I've uploaded. I did not remember that I already had uploaded that species in particular. Except the pallidifacies (this was not present yet). Thank

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