Thread subject: :: Helophilus hybridus? <- confirmed

Posted by Rupert Huber on 24-07-2022 17:31

Hi all!

Is this Helophilus hybridus? And if yes, are these black stripes on the abdomen sign of an illness, or is that part of its normal range of appearance?

(And if no, what is it?)

Rather small, approx. 10 mm

22.7.2022, Germany, Baden-W├╝rttemberg, near lake Mindelsee (Radolfzell), about 410 m asl., coordinates ~ 47.75404, 9.00674
