Very cool! Does this cover Syrphini from the entirety of the listed states, e.g. even the parts of California that are more a part of the Pacific Northwest?

Nice work!

The diagnosis for each species should be equally valid throughout the listed states. Only at least somewhat common species from each area have been included--a more extensive, and correspondingly more impenetrable, set of notes is linked on the references slide for rare species. @kueda

Wow, that really is a clean way to show species compared to what I have usually found.
