Syrphus's picture

Following my comments on the

Following my comments on the Scottish post http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/243028, if I saw this I would not call it purpurella (or at least not a pure one). It is atypically pale, the spike is very small and rather lax, the leaves look too pale and narrow. But this is not an easy genus. The jizz is more like incarnata, though the details don't match that.
