I found this little fella the other day dead on a windowsill and I'm not even sure which genus it belongs to.
Sizewise it's similar to the smaller of the Episyrphus balteatus.

Any suggestions?

Hello Sandy

I think it is a Platycheirus - if you'd like to send it to me I will be able to give you a definitive ID:

Oops! Sorry Roger I no longer have it Embarassed

I need to start putting on an 'entomologist's head' in these situations.

At least I know what to do next time I find a dead hoverfly when doing the dusting.

No probs - I'm sure there will be more.

Thanks all the same
