Setae a little less complex than that seen in female P. vagabunda
See:HERE

This is the 'basic' pattern seen in males of Pollenia based on the text and figures (especially Fig. 78) in Whitworth.
Note:
- no dark median thoracic stripe
- 1 inner posthumeral seta
- 2 humeral setae - perhaps a 3rd much smaller seta in this male
