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

Platycheirus ramsarensis Goeldlin, Maibach & Speight, 1990

Biology: Larvae unknown. This species was split from P. clypeatus by Speight & Goeldlin (1990) and Goeldlin et al. (1990), and there are relatively few records as yet. It has been found in oligotrophic, wet situations beside moorland streams and lakes, usually where there are small flushes with abundant Carex or Juncus. Adults fly low down amongst stands of vegetation and will visit flowers such as Caltha

Distribution: From the relatively few records received so far, this appears to be a widespread and relatively frequent species in moorland areas of North Wales, the Pennines and Scotland. It is often abundant where it occurs
