Can anyone help with the identification of these hoverflies or point me in the direction of a good hoverfly key/book?
Can anyone confirm whether this is a discoloured carder bee, or something entirely different?
Really, iSpot works on the basis of a single picture = a single ID.
However, the hovers, in order top to bottom are...
The book for hoverflies is British Hoverflies by Stubbs and Falk...not cheap, but a superb book.
My Flickr photos...
You need to post each one in a post of its own, so the ID on the post is unique for each.
Carder bees can get fading on their hair with time, but can't tell for sure from that pic if it is that, could be.
