Dear Bastiaan, Thomas, Andrew and others,

The species is not dissimilar to one which was collected by Thomas Romig, also by me, in Malaysia. What is interesting with that species is the larva. It is rat-tailed like in Eristalini and lives inside bamboo stems on which woodpeckers or other animals have made holes. I have a few of these larvae at me and have intended to describe them, but it has not been done.

Best wishes, Heikki

  Hi all,

  I received this beautiful photo of a Syrphid but have no clue what family it even is. Anyone?
  The photo is taken in Indonesia.
