Dear colleagues,

Based on suggestions from Francis, and taking into account comments from 
Sander regarding the common names for genera that will be in use for the 
English version of the Dutch field guide (and Wouter's comment that 
considering the low number of species in Primocerioides, and the 
possible redefinition of genera within Cerioidini / Cerioidina  it would 
be a good option to also use Wasp Fly for Primocerioides), I'm sending 
here the list of suggested common names for the six species of interest:

Sphiximorpha petronillae: Petronilla's Wasp Fly

Primocerioides regale:  Royal Wasp Fly

Chalcosyrphus pannonicus: Pannonian Leafwalker

Chalcosyrphus jacobsoni: Jacobson's Leafwalker

Chalcosyrphus nigripes: Black-legged Leafwalker

Brachypalpus chrysites: Golden Forest Fly

I will leave up to you to decide how Doug's comment regarding 
Primocerioides  regale/regalis should be implemented.

Thank you all for your help and contribution!

Best wishes,
