|Epistrophe grossulariae is a large hoverfly, with the straight black bands on the abdominal segments (tergites) being a good clue to identification. The other similar species don't have the black antennae of E. grossulariae. This one was photographed in mid-August, at Hare Hill Wood and it is quite commonly found at several local sites.|
