Description of Syrphus luniger

Eupeodes luniger is a moderate sized (average of 8mm length) Syrphid hoverfly with characteristic wasp-like yellow markings on the abdomen. In the case of E. Luniger these are obviously comma shaped and usually do not meet at the centre line of the abdomen, although in this variable species some individuals show markings that do meet and form spectacle shaped yellow patches. These markings do not reach the lateral edges.
