Paragus haemorrhous Meigen is a species of Hover fly belonging to family Syrphidae of order Diptera. This is a small sized hover fly commonly called syrphid fly. This species is beneficial because adults play very important role in pollination and its larvae are predators used in biological control. The specimens were collected from different localities of Quetta, Balochistan and identification was done with the help of available literature. This species is redescribed here on the basis of morphological characters, male terminalia, male and female external genitalia. This syrphid fly has been reported for the first time from Balochistan, Pakistan.
