I haven't seen a lot of Hover Flies around here lately although no doubt their numbers will increase as summer approaches. This one was not found attending a flower but rather, it came to my moth trap at night back on the 30th October.
It seems to belong to the subfamily Syrphinae which only has four recorded species in Tasmania, those being:
- Melangyna collatus
- Melanostoma sp. A
- Simosyrphus grandicornis
- Xanthandrus agrolas
