Eupeodes

As you say, this is the correct genus now. If you changed it, it would be added to other pics of the same species on iSpot.

Eupodes

Thanks, Ian - I'd have gone for "Eupodes" but the species field didn't recognise it. I'll add an ID and see what happens.

Eupeodes

You are missing an 'e'!

It's a delightful genus name, meaning 'very swollen genitals'...a reference to E. corollae, presumably, which is very well endowed!
