Thread subject: :: Eupeodes latifasciatus? (04.08.22) --> unsure

Posted by Sundew on 10-08-2022 13:52

If you compare Steven Falk's collection of Eupeodes species (https://www.flick...460588728/), you'll see that a banded pattern may occur in some of them. Males are very variable. The best differentiating feature is said to be "second basal wing cell completely covered with microtrichia" in E. latifasciatus, 75 % or less in other species. So poor chances for photos...
Best wishes, Sundew
