Dear Syrphidae Collegues

I'm a part-time PhD student at Swansea University (the rest of my time is with Natural Resources Wales).  I'm studying hoverflies, and specifically how they transport pollen.

Is anyone aware of anything in the literature on measurements of hoverfly 'hairiness' in different species?  I am looking at the potential for different groups to carry pollen, and would be interested in any standardised measurements that may have been carried out.

Thank you for your help
