Syrphus's picture

This seems to be abnormal

This seems to be abnormal growth, such as can be quite common in this species. I don't know the cause, but often you will see flower parts doubled or more, or a flower emerging from the centre of another one, which I think is what is happening here. It seems to happen more often with G. rivale than with other wildflowers.
