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

Parasyrphus vittiger (Zetterstedt, 1843) Syrphus vittiger Zetterstedt in Coe (1953)

Biology: The aphid-feeding larvae have been found mainly on conifers ( Abies, Picea and Pinus), but also on * and, in Switzerland, on Ribes nigrum. Adults are usually found in woodland (either deciduous or coniferous), but they are often taken on heathland in southern England, where they are probably associated with invading Pinus. They appear to be largely arboreal, but will descend to visit flowers in rides and clearings

Distribution: This species appears to be most frequent in northern Britain, especially the Scottish Highlands, but there are also records from the heathlands of southern-central England. There are no recent records from Wales, and very few from the south-west peninsula or eastern England
