Syrphus's picture

I did think hard about this

I did think hard about this one, but decided that the front left leg in fact did have a white tibia. Looking again, it still does. That swayed me away from my first impression that it was Merodon. And you can just about see the femoral tooth if you want to in a full-size pic, so I concede!
