|This hoverfly remained unidentified for over a year, before I finally managed to identify it as Leucozona lucorum. Hoverflies are very common, and many are often mistaken for wasps due to the similar colouring of many species. This example of Leucozona lucorum, was photographed at Eakring Flash on May 9th 2004 and is currently, the only example I have seen. It was photographed due to it's quite beautiful combination of both colouration and pattern. Hoverflies are completely harmless to humans and also little recorded by naturalists.|
