Rhingia campestris

Rhingia campestris

Observation - Rhingia campestris. Description: The hot weather seems to be holding numbers of hoverflies back. The usually common Syrphus and Platycheirus are few and far between, for example. Rhingia, however, seems to be thriving and is present in larger numbers than normal, apparently.
