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

Pipiza noctiluca (Linnaeus, 1758)

Biology: The larvae are aphidophagous, and have been reared on a variety of ground layer and arboreal species, including Cavariella on white umbells. Adults are usually found resting on vegetation along woodland margins, hedgerows and similar situations, or visiting flowers

Distribution: P. bimaculata, P. fenestrata, P. lugubris and P. noctiluca are justifiably seen as comprising a difficult species complex by many recorders, and are often ignored. Consequently, they must be regarded as under-recorded and probably subject to frequent misidentification. This is much the most frequently recorded member of this group, however, and records are widespread in the southern half of Britain, with scattered records to northern Scotland
