Eupeodes

another Eupeodes Rod, probably luniger. I found both Scaeva pyrastri and selenitica up here in Tottenham last year though, so I think you should see them. They're both usually bigger than Eupeodes, with Scaeva p. having cream not yellow markings

Many thanks, Ophrys and Jeremy. Maybe this year darkest Lewisham will offer Scaeva as well.
