How about the following:
Sphiximorpha petronillae: Petronilla's wasp hoverfly
Primocerioides regale:  Regal/Royal wasp hoverfly
Chalcosyrphus pannonicus:  Pannonian forest hoverfly
Chalcosyrphus jacobsoni: Jacobson's forest hoverfly
Chalcosyrphus nigripes: Black-legged forest hoverfly
Brachypalpus chrysites: Golden deadwood hoverfly

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 Friday.

Thank you in advance for your help and engagement.

Best wishes from Novi Sad,
