Three species of hoverflies removed from the Dutch list (Diptera: Syrphidae) Doubtful records of three hoverfly species from the Netherlands are discussed. Two specimens previously identified as Cheilosia acutilabris Becker, 1894 belong to C. proxima (Zetterstedt, 1843). Five specimens previously identified as Melangyna ericarum (Collin, 1946) belong to M. umbellatarum (Fabricius, 1794). Four species previously identified as Paragus finitimus Goeldlin de Tiefenau, 1974 are now considered to belong to P. bicolor (Fabricius, 1794). These results lead to the conclusion that Cheilosia acutilabris, Melangyna ericarum and Paragus finitimus should be removed from the Dutch species list.
