I just got one shot at this critter and I am afraid that a dorsal view may be needed to identify it.


Moved from Orthonevra.

Syrphid fly, genus Orthonevra!
Hello charles,
This one belongs in the Hoverfly department! :-))
It is a female of the genus Orthonevra.
There are some more pictures of this genus in the guide!
