Ancistrocerus unifasciatus

I saw one of these in my Sackville yard last year and this year they are pretty common. They really seem to like the false spiraea (Sorbaria). As far as I know it's not known from elsewhere in NB, does anyone know of other records? It is known from PEI (Chris Adam's record, see http://bugguide.net/node/view/168602). I think they are associated with my neighbour's old barn, which according to the discussion at that BugGuide link is typical of…See More

John Klymko replied to Jimmy Dee's discussion Scarlet Bluet - July 24 - 2016 in the group Maritime Dragonflies and Damselflies
"Amazing! Congratulation! Excellent documentation, great to confirm breeding at the same time as recording the first Canadian record. Given its small range, this species is considered to be of conservation concern at the GLOBAL level! Check out the…"

John Klymko replied to Ron Arsenault (Halifax, N.S.)'s discussion Syrphid Fly in the group Maritime Flies (Diptera)
"Hi Ron, I think the first image is Syrphus.  In Syrphus, at the base of the abdomen it looks like there's a pair of yellow "golf club heads" followed by a yellow "moustache". See the following link to see what I…"

John Klymko replied to Martin Turgeon's discussion St.Basile 14 June 2016 in the group Maritime Flies (Diptera)
"Looks like Sphegina rufiventris. From my experience it's the most common Sphegina in the region."

John Klymko replied to Martin Turgeon's discussion St.Basile 14 June 2016 in the group Maritime Flies (Diptera)
"Probably Syrphus rectus."

John Klymko replied to Martin Turgeon's discussion St.Basile 14 June 2016 in the group Maritime Flies (Diptera)
"This is Sphegina (Syrphidae). It is probably identifiable to species from these photos."

John Klymko replied to Martin Turgeon's discussion St.Basile 14 June 2016 in the group Maritime Flies (Diptera)
"This is Syrphus. I think it's  S. rectus. The combination of an all dark metatarsus (back foot) and banded metafemur is good for females of that species (note pointy abdomen). "
