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

Syrphus ribesii (Linnaeus, 1758)

Biology: The larvae are commonly found feeding at all sorts of ground layer and arboreal aphid colonies. Overwintering larvae can often be found in leaf litter below aphid-infested Acer pseudoplatanus trees. Occur in most habitats, including woodland of all types, farmland, parks and gardens and urban areas. Adults can be found resting on sunny vegetation and visiting flowers of all sorts. The males hover amongst the canopy of woodlands and are responsible for the audible whine that can be heard in woodlands in mid-summer. This species is multiple-brooded, and so has a long season. It can be abundant in urban areas and gardens

Distribution: One of the most widespread and abundant hoverflies throughout Britain
