Bit earlier in the year (13 June 2009), but two insects I saw only one of each, and one too briefly, hence uncertainty of i.d.- Anasimya sp.

The obvious one is Platycheirus (Pyrophaena) rosarum.

Local gravel pits near home. (Northants SP818611).

Regards, Jim D.

Thanks, Jim. A fine study of rosarum: what a truly shining thorax and scutellum (with the photographer clearly reflected in both).
By contrast, it's a shame that reflection is such a problem in the wings of the Anasimyia: I think it will prevent any confident identification of the species.
