Dear colleagues,

There is one current EU project named Action Plans for conservation of 
threatened pollinator species in the EU, aiming to develop 3 action 
plans for different groups of threatened pollinators. One of these 
groups are saproxylic hoverlfies, more precisely Sphiximorpha 
petronillae, Chalcosyrphus pannonicus, Primocerioides regale, 
Brachypalpus chrysites, Chalcosyrphus jacobsoni and Chalcosyrphus nigripes.

In the process of developing a Status Review, encompassing all relevant 
information on these species, one of the requirements is to have common 
names for these species. We said that for many hoverflies we do not have 
common names in English, but they instructed us that in case we do not 
have, we should create them.

So, this is an open call for all of you to give your suggestions on 
common names in English for the six listed species. I am afraid that the 
deadline for this is short, as it is short for finalizing the entire 
Status Review, so I would kindly ask you to send your suggestions by 

Thank you in advance for your help and engagement.

Best wishes from Novi Sad,
Marija Miličić
