Syrphidae 01 - Sericomyia militaris - female

Syrphidae 01 - Sericomyia militaris - Female
Nazco area, Cariboo Region, British Columbia, Canada
September 5, 2008
Size: ~2.2cm
Resting on a cobble in a gravel quarry in the Nazco area

Moved from Sericomyia. See Canadian National Collection, Sericomyia images plate 1.

Moved from Syrphid Flies.

Sericomyia for sure, and probably militaris.
I'm not aware if there are other species that look like militaris, as I don't know them all!

Not an ID -
but resembles our images of Sericomyia militaris - please wait for an expert to comment, though...
