Hi all

I wonder if anybody can help with IDing at least to the genus level the flies in these photos. I'm working through some records at the moment and these have me puzzled.

Sandy,
Numbers 43, 48a 51a look very much like Neoascia podagrica.
No. 30a might be Platycheirus peltatus female
No. 42 - can't say!

Best wishes

So 30a might be a Lightly-shielded Broadhand? Very Happy Excellent!

43 48a 51a. On that outing I remember chasing around a tiny hoverfly but I couldn't recall whether I'd managed to photograph it or not. These must be that fly or flies as I understand Neoasica is very small.
A new genus for me, thanks Nigel. Very Happy


All the Best

Sandy
