Wingless Hoverfly

Wingless Hoverfly

Observation - Wingless Hoverfly - UK and Ireland. Description: The wings hadn't expanded on this fly :( Although the colour patterning isn't shown in Stubbs and Falk, the species is said to be very variable. The legs appear to be all black which is why I went for this species.
