Hoverfly - Xanthogramma pedissequum

An attractive, distinctively-marked hoverfly, with lateral yellow stripes on the thorax and tri-angular yellow 'spots' on tergite 2. Very obligingly, this new species for me was braving the rain yesterday, and was the only insect I saw on my walk. Fortunately, it was close to the car park and stayed put whilst I fetched my camera from the car - what luck!
