Platycheirus manicatus

Observation - Platycheirus manicatus. Description: A common hoverfly, large for the genus, with a dull thorax and long, rounded spots. The distinctive extended face is just about visible in the pictures, sticking out in front of and below the antennae. Difficult to agree with, I know.
