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

Eupeodes corollae (Fabricius, 1794) Syrphus corollae Fabricius ( consisto Harris) in Coe (1953), Metasyrphus corollae (Fabricius) in Stubbs & Falk (1983)

Biology: Larvae feed on aphids on various low growing plants, especially Leguminosae. Adults highly mobile and may be found at flowers in all sorts of fairly open situations from woodland clearings to arable farmland and urban areas. Visits a wide range of flowers and commonly occurs in parks and gardens. This species overwinters as a puparium and has a very long flight period

Distribution: One of the commonest flower-visiting species throughout Britain, and believed to be boosted in abundance, at least in some years, by migration from the continent
