  7. Eriozona syrphoides - Wooly-belt Hoverfly (female) 
Vernacular names English: Unoff. Wooly-belt Hoverfly Dansk: Bjerg-Svirreflue Deutsch: Pelzschwebfliege Español: Français: Nederlands: bontzweefvlieg Norsk (bokmål): humlebarskogblomsterflue Svenska: humlelik barrblomfluga Taken near Humbie, Scotland. Generic name from Greek “Erio” meaning wool and “zona” meaning belt - a pretty apt description. Large attractive bumblebee mimic first recorded in Britain in 1968 and is probably a recent colonist. Larval food appears to be aphids on spruce trees so has no doubt benefitted from the widespread use of spruce in upland conifer plantations.
