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

Platycheirus europaeus Goeldlin, Maibach & Speight, 1990

Biology: Larvae unknown. This is one of the species recently split from P. clypeatus agg. by Speight & Goeldlin (1990) and Goeldlin et al. (1990), and as yet, few records have been received: Scottish records mainly refer to damp, open situations within woodland (including pine forest), whilst in England, the species is recorded from wet woodland rides, often on clay soils. In Wales it has been found in damp scrub in sand dunes. Adults fly low down amongst the vegetation and will visit the flowers of sedges and grasses

Distribution: This appears to be a widespread but scarce species in Britain, although it can be abundant where it occurs
