The very prominent face of Anasimyia lineata makes it an easy species to identify.
This feature is used in the 2nd couplet of the Key to Tribes (Stubbs & Falk, 2002, page 59) and is usually quite obvious. This is the wing of Volucella bombylans
A feathery, plumose arista occurs only in the Volucellini (genus Volucella) and Sericomyiini (genera Sericomyia and Arctophila) so it is an obvious character that narrows things down a lot!
Face of a male Cheilosia variabilis showing the eye margins - grooves running down the sides of the face close to the compound eyes. This feature is chracteristic of the Cheilosiini. Used in the Key to Tribes - (Stubbs & Falk, 2002, page 61, couplet 13).
