Hoverfly

Abdominal markings not matching thumbnail, head profile resembles that of a female Platycheirus clypeatus, ( Hoverflies F.S. Gilbert ), but again abdominal markings do not correspond. Good sharp photos by the way.

Thanks, looking at the other

Thanks, looking at the other thumbnail, you're quite correct about the abdominal markings

As ophryus has correctly

As ophryus has correctly observed I initially had two separate hoverflies shown. I've now removed the impostor and given an additional view of the syrphus above. Many apologies for the mistake.
