Description:

Observed in a small nature reserve in Uckfield. Sussex. Hoverfly feeding on umbellifer flowers. All corrections appreciated.
Could be E. Nemorum as it has a dark hind metatarsus that looks to be thnner than the tibia.
Don't think it's E. perinax as the front and middle tarsi are dark.
