Thread subject: :: Scaeva, but which one? -> Scaeva cf. dignota

I would be a little more cautious with the identification, as I find the hairs on the eyes a bit long. To tell the females apart from S. selenitica is difficult - see the character table in https://www.resea...Poland.pdf. S. selenitica specimens that developed at warmer temperatures may have spots that reach the tergite margins. So to me it's just S. cf. ignota.
