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

Neoascia tenur (Harris, 1780) Neoascia dispar (Meigen, 1822) in Coe (1953) and Kloet & Hincks (1976)

Biology: Larvae have been found at about the level of the water surface within the stem sheaths of dead Typha in a slow flowing stream. As an adult, this is probably the most frequently encountered member of the genus, occurring in lush vegetation around the margins of all types of water body, especially where beds of emergent plants such as Glyceria, Typha or Phragmites are present. Adults are most often found by sweeping such vegetation, but will visit a wide range of flowers

Distribution: Widespread in wetlands throughout Britain, and often extremely abundant in suitable habitat
