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

Eumerus tuberculatus Rondani, 1857

Biology: The larvae tunnel in damaged bulbs of Narcissus and many other cultivated and wild species. Adults are usually found low in vegetation or resting on dead stems or bare patches of soil. They are abundant in gardens

Distribution: The commonest member of the genus, frequent in gardens, where it is known to gardeners as the “lesser bulb fly” and sometimes regarded as a pest. Speight (1985) concludes that this species is not established in Ireland, and points out that it was not recorded in Britain until the beginning of this century, suggesting that it may have been introduced from southern or central Europe via imported bulbs. E. tuberculatus was added to the British list by Collin (1918) and the recording scheme holds only one pre-1920 record, a museum specimen taken in Surrey in 1905
