Thanks Linda and Martin for the comments
Shot of the same hoverfly larva the next day below- looks as if it may have settled down to pupate after gorging itself on so many aphids.
I would love it if you were able to watch the progress of this one - wouldnt it be just great if you saw what emerged. Now I dont know anyone that has actually seen a hover emerge - have you seen an actual emergence?
I recently had 2 pupa on the seed bits of some Honesty and I wondered whether to put them somewhere safer, knowing that the discs would pop, but the wind got them before I had a chance to decide where to move them to, so now I will never know where they went
