Callicera

Thanks for the correction Ophrys ,I didn;t look close enough .to notice the femora .This is the only one I have seen ,quite an impressive looking Hoverfly.

Confused!

I notice Roger has agreed with spinolae. It would be interesting to know why, as I thought dark femora on a female made it aurata and not spinolae. Confused!

Snap!

Hi Paul, we haven't met, but I've only just got around to posting the same species here, that I took the day after your photo - at Maple Lodge, nectaring on a teasel!! Now thats spooky!

I'm guessing it was the same one, a teasel on the right of the path just before the sluice hide?

What are the odds on 2 people finding the same specimen at exactly the same place with no communication!

Kind regards, Martin Parr
