Thread subject: :: Three syrphids

Posted by Juergen Peters on 05-05-2005 20:33


All these three syrphids I found today here in Ostwestfalen/Germany on a meadow near a forest. Can someone please help me identify them? Thanks in advance!

The first one, I assume, belongs to the genus Dasysyrphus. Is it possible to determine the species after that photo?

The second one was about the same size and look as an Eristalis species, but with a quite different wing posture:

The third one (sorry for the bad photo quality, it was rather stormy) was about 10 mm long.
