Very much Arctophila bombiformis - not in Nottinghamshire I suspect.
Gorgeous creature.


PS Check out the Flickr site below - British syrphids 90% finished - should
feature c250 of the 270 UK species once completed with habitats shots too.
May be useful for your students. I'll do the bees when I get time (I have a
better library of those the the hoverflies!). I'd like to add hoverfly
larvae to the folders one day too.

Hi everyone


Is this Arctophila bombiformis?

Or is it an unusual morph of Volucella bombylans?
