Hello! Just gettin’ in to bug season here in Ohio, and identifying this little beauty took me quite a while. I was just convinced he was a bee! I’m pretty sure he’s Toxomerus geminatus, but could possibly be Toxomerus marginatus. I just don’t have the eye to tell yet. Tiny little guy!
We believe that your identification of this Flower Fly in the family Syrphidae as Toxomeris geminatus is correct. We are linking to the BugGuide page for additional reference.
