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

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