Syrphidae - Meliscaeva cinctella

Syrphidae - Meliscaeva cinctella
Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada
August 27, 2011
It was on Symphyotrichum novae-belgii growing on a rock in the middle of La Diable River. The forest around was more coniferous.

Moved from Syrphid Flies.

Meliscaeva cinctella?

Moved for expert attention
Moved from ID Request.

Thanks for cropping. :)

It's a lovely shot...
...but it would be more helpful to most BugGuide visitors if it were cropped as close to "just the bug" as possible.

You can click on "edit" and upload a cropped version. It will replace the current pic.


I'll cut the plant host.
