Moved from Eristalis.

Moved from Eristalinae.

Thanks, Beatriz
Looks like I did another bad job of parking!

Do some penance : )
How about commenting on some of the unidentified Syrphidae and Syrphinae and letting me know. I am sure that quite a few can be moved to tribe or genus or even better. Your comments would be very helpful. No rush.

Mea culpa
While I will not vow to sin again, I will look them over. Haven't done that for some time.

Eristalis sp.
