Thread subject: :: Male syrphids -> Epistrophe flava + melanostoma

Hello Marion Friedrich,

The second and fourth photo show a nice specimen of a male Epistrophe flava. Nice species and nice photo's.

The first and thrid photo show a specimen with the wider angle of the eyes is a specimen with conspicuous black frons. However the abdominal bands are nor conform the two species that show that feature. The straight front edge of the band makes me think male E. melanostoma.
