You might find a species of Lycastris, something I have always wanted to see, with its outlandishly long proboscis !

Not at 4000m that is mighty high, though I had Pararctophila (oberthueri?), Eristalis cerealis, E.tenax, Syrphus ribessi and a Sphaerophoria from the hills around Srinigar, and if the butterflies are anything to go by, stuff gets blown higher than it breeds. Let us know what you find (and any photos),

Hi, does anyone know what hoverfly species to expect in the Himalayas (India) at about 4000 m above sea level?
