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

Eristalis interruptus (Poda, 1761) Eristalis nemorum (Linnaeus) in Stubbs & Falk (1983)

Biology: The larvae of are of the ‘long-tailed’, aquatic type and are found in shallow water and semi-aquatic situations at the margins of streams and pools, often where there is enrichment and including in cow-dung. Adults are usually seen visiting flowers, especially white umbels, often in the vicinity of trees or scrub. Males make themselves conspicuous because of their fast and noisy flight. This species has a very characteristic courtship in which the male hovers above a female which is visiting a flower (see photograph in Stubbs & Falk, 1983)

Distribution: An abundant flower-visiting species, found throughout Britain
