on Ivy with Syrphus and Melisceava
No interactions present.
Early Syrphus quite likely to be torvus?
No Syrphus round here, yet, but lots of Melangyna lasiophthalma and the odd quadrimaculata, the last couple of (warm) days. Otherwise, just Cheilosia grossa, so far. The worst Easter period for flies which I have experienced!
My Flickr photos...
I can check the eyes then, for hairs. Some had very narrow yellow bands and all were large
E. pertinax also present, and fruit fly T. formosa .. still not as good as early March yet though
