Dear all,
This summer I caught some Syrphids from the genus Criorhina in the mountains 
of Greece.
They seem to key out as C. floccosa (with a yellow bundle of long hairs in 
the front corners of tergite 2), but don't really look like it in general, 
because floccosa looks like a orange bumblebee, and this one is black and 
white on the abdomen.
Pictures can be seen on the website www.diptera.info, and go to the 
discussion forum, and than  Syrphidae.
Can anyone tell me if this is a form of C. floccosa, or another species of 
Greetings, Gerard Pennards
