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

Brachypalpoides lentus (Meigen, 1822) Xylota lenta Meigen in Coe (1953), Xylotomima lenta (Meigen, 1822) in Kloet & Hincks (1976)

Biology: The larvae of this species occur in the decaying heartwood of *, particularly in live trees with exposed decay at ground level. Adults are often seen flying around the base of, or sitting in the sun on * trunks and stumps. They have occasionally been found at Crataegus flowers, and have also been recorded visiting flowers of Ranunculus. There are several records of specimens found indoors on windows in wooded districts

Distribution: This species is proving to be more frequent and widespread than previously believed and, whilst it is recorded most frequently from well-wooded areas of southern Britain, it is widespread north to central Scotland
