Great pictures. These are Myathropa florea .... female.

Do all of these images depict the same individual?
If so, they should be linked.

I can help you do that, if you like.

Thanks--and welcome to BugGuide!

 
Yes they are! Thank you so mu
Yes they are! Thank you so much for your help!
Can't wait to start uploading other pics I got recently.

 
I've linked the images.
Next time, if you have multiple views of the same specimen, post the first image, then view the image you just posted and click on the "add image" link under the photo. When you upload the next view, it will automatically be linked to the first one. Repeat with additional views.

 
Got it, thanks! Another qu
Got it, thanks!

Another question I had: if I have a guess about the species but not sure - where should I upload the photo? To the ID request? Or go to the specific family/genus (that I suspect it to belong to) and upload there? I believe this way it will be easier to identify, right?

 
Please don't guess.
Post to ID Request (which is always safe) or to your deepest level of certainty (I stress, certainty). For example, if you know you have a syrphid, and you're pretty sure it's Allograpta, and you suspect it's Allograpta obliqua, please post to ID Request or to Syrphidae.

 
Sounds good! And I can put 'P
Sounds good! And I can put 'Probably it's a Allograpta obliqua' in the comments section to help with further identification.
Thanks again for your help!

 
Sure
Put any additional information into the Remarks section.
