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

Sericomyia lappona (Linnaeus, 1758)

Biology: The larvae are of the ‘long-tailed’, aquatic type, and are associated with peaty pools and boggy stream-sides in moorland and with wet woodland, such as Salix carr. Adults are usually seen visiting flowers, or basking on sunlit foliage, rocks, etc., near larval habitat. In southern England, this species is associated with sandy, acid heathland, not always in wet areas. It tends to occur earlier in the year than S. silentis, although they are not infrequently seen together

Distribution: Very similar in distribution to S. silentis (the two species often occurring together), but less abundant and more strictly confined to bogs, especially in southern Britain
