Parhelophilus sp. (Hoverfly sp.)


Hoverflies in the genus Parhelophilus look similar to those in the genus Helophilus but they are generally smaller, rounder, more orange and have hairs on their abdomen.
Five species occur in Europe.
This is either Parhelophilus frutetorum, which can be recognized by the row of black hairs behind the eyes, or Parhelophilus versicolor which has yellow hairs behind the eyes.
