Microdon (virgo-species group) (French Guiana) 3

This amazing metallic green hoverfly was in the first batch from French Guiana. Menno Reemer is currently revising the Microdontini so the name is only tentative and might be subject to change.

EDIT (1/5/2011): Menno has this specimen and has confirmed that it is part of the virgo-species group.

    This is a weird-shaped microdon ! Do the larvae looks like the european ones? (for instance http://myrmecofourmis.fr/Une-larve-de-mouche-en-forme-de ). Our adults looks really more like bumblebees.
