Apologies for poor photo- This is the only pic I have.
(Clandon Wood, Surrey Hills. June 5th 2016. mixed habitat- meadows, pond, hedgerows).
please could someone check my id?
a) I think this is a Conopid.
b) Am i OK to record it as Sicus ferrugineus?
Certainly a Sicus and so almost certainly ferrugineus, though impossible to rule out S. abdominalis, I suppose. Given that the latter is almost mythical, I think you'd be safe. David Clements runs the recording scheme and ultimately would have to decide, depending on where you send the record.
