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

Sphegina clunipes (FallÚn, 1816)

Biology: The larvae are found in sap-runs and other accumulations of decaying sap under bark, usually in damp shaded places. It is found in lush, damp undergrowth in deciduous woodland, including carr woodland, wooded river banks and fenland scrub. Adults seem to prefer shady situations and are rarely found outside the shade of woodland canopy and are normally taken by sweeping, but occasionally visit flowers in dappled sunlight

Distribution: This is the most frequent member of the genus (with more than twice as many records received by the recording scheme for this species than for S. elegans, and nearly eight times as many than for S. verecunda), found in woodland throughout Britain. Curiously, northern specimens are much more colourful
