Typo

You have made a typo it should be Myathropa florea, Otherwise you are correct. Add a revised ID.

Query typo

The spelling was intentional! I was going by F S Gilbert (Naturalists Handbook 5), which lists it as stated. Has the species name been updated (or is Gilbert wrong)?

Typo

Sorry, I assumed it was a typo as I've never heard the the name you entered, fairly new to hoverflies.

Myiatropa

Not really a typo...but an old form of the name. As Chris says, Myathropa is now used.

Edit: Yes, updated to Myathropa. You should change the ID to Myathropa florea, to add the sighting to others of the species.

Updated name.

Serves me right for using an old reference book. I'll update it.

Updated genus name.

Frustration!

I've added the updated genus name as a revised ID but the system doesn't appear to want to accept it. At times this system is a bit counter-intuitive to use.
