Syrphid Fly (Syrphidae) (Tribe Syrphini) - Eupeodes
Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada

Size: just under 2 cm
Hoping to find out what kind of Syrphid Fly within Tribe Syrphini this is. Edit: Found all over my petunias. Many thanks Bill, Ron, and Martin Hauser for id.


Moved from Eupeodes.


Subg... thanks, Bill! :)

Moved from ID Request.

Eupeodes sp.
That genus is indicated by the black margin around the outside edge of the abdomen. The very similar Syrphus has "wrap around" light stripes. The less similar Epistrophe has a lot of hair where the margin is on your specimen.

Thanks for your expertise :) Glad to have Saskatchewan on the data map now :)
