Abstract
Reinigen des Kopfes, der Vorder- und Hinterbeine sowie der Flügel. Mit Zeitdehnung.
The grooming behaviour of Syrphus balteatus is shown in numerous sequences of movement, some shot in slow-motion. The grooming organs are the tarsal and tibial hairs of the forelegs and hindlegs. The forelegs clean the head and antennae, the head turning up to 180 degrees in both directions to make all regions readily accessible. Particles of dirt collected by the tarsae during this activity are removed by reciprocal cleaning. The hindlegs clean the tergum, the upper and lower sides of the wings, the tip of the wings, the halteres and the upper side of the abdomen as well as themselves.
