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


I see these Drone Flies, also known as a Rat-tailed Maggots, around from spring to autumn. The white face is your best clue. I tend to confuse them with Eristalis dimidiata so viewer beware.

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