Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Syrphid Fly - Eristalis dimidiata & Eristalis stipator
Class:Insecta Order:Diptera Family:Syrphidae Genus:Eristalis


I confuse these flies with Drone Flies because of the incomplete brown band around the abdomen. The shots September 12, 2013 are believed to be Eristalis stipator.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
