Thread subject: :: [Eristalinus taeniops]

Here is some Eristalini I found on F?niculum in south Corsica (20th september, 10 mm approx).

I think it may be some Eristalinus taeniops ?
Thanks for advice !
(other picts available whenever needed)

It is indeed E. taeniops!
It is the only Eristalinus with striped eyes, the other european species have spotted eyes!
It is widely distributed in Southern Europe, North Africa and to the East (Greece and further)
