Species account from Provisional atlas of British hoverflies, Ball & Morris, 2000.

Chrysotoxum arcuatum (Linnaeus, 1758)

Biology: The larvae have been found feeding on root aphids associated with the nests of ants. They are not easy to find, and the best time to search for them is at night (Rotheray, pers. comm.). Occurs widely in upland and moorland locations in unimproved grassland with scrub and in grassy opening in woodland. Adults fly low among ground vegetation and visit a wide range of flowers in sheltered situations

Distribution: A strictly northern and western species, locally frequent north of a line from the Severn to the Humber, although there is a recent record from the Breckland of Norfolk.
