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

Epistrophe grossulariae (Meigen, 1822)Syrphus grossulariae Meigen in Coe (1953)

Biology: The larvae are frequently found feeding on aphids on Acer pseudoplatanus, but may also prey on other arboreal aphid species. A species of deciduous woodland. Adults are usually found visiting flowers, especially white umbells and Succisa pratensis along woodland rides and edges, scrub and around mature hedgerows. Males hover in clearings, over tracks, etc

Distribution: Widespread throughout Britain, but less frequent in eastern England. Although this species remains on the wing until October, early specimens may be overlooked amongst the many black and yellow species active in spring
