Syrphid - Rhingia nasica - female

Syrphid - Rhingia nasica - Female
Harvard, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
June 17, 2005
Size: 8mm

Puzzled
I am a bit perplexed, this specimen and #20707 look like Rhingia to me (see #7220) with that big snout. They look quite different from the other Anasimyia #15460 and #17281

 
Rhingia
They do appear to br Rhingia species. I'll move them over there. We'll have to double check with Gerard on his ID.
