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

Eristalis intricarius (Linnaeus, 1758)

Biology: The larvae are of the ‘long-tailed’, aquatic type and occur in semi-liquid organic matter such and organically enriched mud and waterlogged peat besides ponds and drains, but also in slurry pits and cow-dung. Adults are usually found visiting flowers, especially flowering shrubs, white umbels, Senecio and Cirsium, often in the vicinity of trees or scrub. Males can be seen hovering at some height above tracks and in woodland rides. This is a good bumble bee mimic, occurring in three colour forms

Distribution: Widespread and common throughout Britain, possibly more local in the north
