Thread subject: :: Helophilus ID? (Ketton, Rutland)

Hi All

Another hoverfly that I haven't seen before.
I think it is Helophilus trivittatus (Large Tiger Hoverfly).

Could some confirm or put me straight please?

Yours, Gareth

Correct, but the nice compilation in the identification aids of https://www.natur...rivittatus shows which characters should be checked and photographed to safely discriminate between the three Helophilus species.
