Baetis

Tiny Baetis mayflies are perhaps the most commonly encountered and imitated by anglers on all American trout streams due to their great abundance, widespread distribution, and trout-friendly emergence habits.

27" brown trout, my largest ever. It was the sub-dominant fish in its pool. After this, I hooked the bigger one, but I couldn't land it.

Hello all,

Would it be possible to identify this female Syrphidae? (Genus, Species)?

Those pictures were taken in a marsh near home (Quebec, near Vermont).







Thanks alot :)

Michel-

I believe your Syrphidae is a member of the genus Eristalis. I don't have any idea to species but this link may help.
