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

Ferdinandea cuprea (Scopoli, 1763)

Biology: The larvae, which when present are often numerous, are usually found in sap runs on deciduous trees, but have also been found in a variety of other situations where semi-liquid rotting material is present including the decaying roots of cultivated globe artichoke Cynara scolymus in France. They are adapted to manoeuvre into small spaces such as below bark, and remain hidden deep within the sap. The pupae usually occur under loose bark near a sap run. Adults are often found sunning themselves on tree trunks or posts, and sometimes visiting flowers such as Ranunculus. They usually occur in or near woodland, but can also be associated with trees in hedgerows, parks and other situations

Distribution: Widespread throughout Britain but never common, occurring most frequently in areas with plenty of deciduous woodland
