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

Helophilus pendulus (Linnaeus, 1758)

Biology: Larvae are of the ‘long-tailed’ aquatic type and can be found in almost any enriched, wet or semi-liquid medium ranging from waterlogged, rotting vegetation at the edge of ponds and ditches to water-filled tree hollows, water-butts, wet compost heaps, slurry pits and even in cow-dung. Adults appear to very mobile and can be found just about anywhere, frequently well away from water, and visiting a wide range of flowers from ground vegetation to tree-flowers. They are frequent visitors to garden flowers

Distribution: One of the commonest and most widespread British hoverflies. Speight (1998) describes it as “anthropogenic and ubiquitous in some regions of Europe because of its ability to use a wide range of standing water and sub-aqueous habitats”
