Fife's First For Flies!

Checking out some Devils-bit Scabious at lunchtime when my eye was caught by a rather flashy hoverfly (I thought). Once in the net I knew I had it wrong, but it was an interesting beast anyway, so I potted it. On the same patch of DBS I then noticed a rather robust hover which I also potted.

It could turn out, as things stand, that these are both first for Fife! Conops quadrifasciatus (the first fly - a Conopid) seems to have no entries for VC85 in NBN and nor does the hover - Xanthandrus comtus

Time will tell. Both good records anyway!
