I got a female specimen of Cheilosia from
Finland, Ta:Somero 6.V.2000. I have problems
to determine it.

Here is a short description of the female specimen:
- eyes bare
- face bare, lustrous black
- 3. segment of antennae orange, large
  (smaller than pagana female have but larger than pagana male have)
- all femora black with yellow tip
- all tibiae yellow without dark annulations
- all tarsi black
- scutellum without bristles
- hairs on mesonotum and abdomen short and pale
- length about 8 mm

I think that the specimen migth be Cheilosia pollinosa Becker,
but I am not found description of it. Every suggestions are
welcome to determine the specimen.

Your sincerely
