I found this Hover-fly on a Dandelion at Brockholes Nature Reserve in Lancashire.
I got an on top shot but didn't get it's face.
However because of the wing veins , dark wing cloud and dark scutellum, I am guessing it is Cheilosia illustrata.
But all the pictures I see have their wings closed over their abdomen ? not open like this one ?
It's a Leucozona lucorum.
Thank you Florin
I didn't look properly, I should have seen the scutellum was yellowish.
