Dear all,
I have spend my vacation in Greece this year, part of it in the North West, 
in the Zagoria region.
In the Pindos mountains i visited the Vikos Gorge, and here I have caught a 
female syrphid that seems to be a member of the genus Pterallastes! I 
identified it with the manual of Nearctic Diptera and a website about asian 
Syrphidae with pictures, for there seem to be no records and/or keys of this 
genus regarding Europe. Can anyone provide me with more information on this 
genus, the species and the countries they live in? I know in eastern North 
America their is a P. thoracicus.
Thanks in advance,
Gerard Pennards
