Best described as resembling an oversized urbana, male with a completely
dusted frons. Size and build much like the largest pagana. Peaks with the
Salix blossom and seems to use wetlands/carr. Will the foodplant be
Asteraceae? (does anybody know what it is yet?)
Just for info - something big happening on Nov 5th:
So excited, I could pop - it mentions bee-mimic hoverflies, Volucella
bombylans larvae and shows beyond doubt that some UK hoverflies do mimic
solitary bees (Francis!)
Best wishes,

Hello everybody,
I struggled to find good distinctive characters for Cheilosia uviformis
Becker, 1894 and read in the species accounts that they are written in the
paper of Speight and Claußen (1987). I couldn't find anywhere.

Speight, M.C.D. & Claussen, C. (1987) Redefinition of Cheilosia ahenea and
argentifrons with records extending the known range of these species in
Western Europe (Diptera, Syrphidae). Annls.Soc.ent.Fr. (N.S.), 23(3):

could anyone share it with me?

Yours sincerely 
Raphael Weniger
