Eristalis intricarius image needs confirmation

Postby wirralbirder on Mon Nov 21, 2016 9:47 pm

Hi all
This hover taken back in 2005 on the early date of March 28th at Leasowe Common.The shape and colour of the hind tibia leads me to believe that it may be a female E.intricarius.I have looked at images on the internet some show the species to have clear wings except for the costal stigma ,others show a wing with a more shaded wing.Confirmation would be appreciated as this would be a new species for me.
Cheers Harry
