Some autumn hoverflies including a new species

Had a lunchtime walk around one of the meadows at Parke yesterday and found this hoverfly.

Helo trivittatus
It is called Helophilus trivittatus – it is the first time it has been recorded at Parke or indeed any of the National Trust’s properties on Dartmoor

Helophilus trivittatus
It is quite widely distributed in Britain but it rarely is common

Myathropa florea
Also found a photographed this common species Myathropa florea

Sericomya silentis
Along with this wasp mimic Sericomya silentis which is a classic Devon and Dartmoor species
