Leucozona glaucia - Hoverfly #37

The 37th hoverfly species of the year was snagged at lunchtime - Leucozona glaucia. It's easy to see the leucozona (pale area!) and glaucia? Well, it has a pale scutellum, but who knows whether that's where the epithet comes from. There is a similar species with a dark scutellum though.
