Didea fasciata (Macquart, 1834)
This was once thought to be an uncommon Hoverfly of woodlands, but has proved to be far more widespread than orignally thought. We have been sent just one record for Nottinghamshire, found by Pauline Bradford at Dyscarr Wood in the north of the county, in late June 2014. Our thanks go to Pauline, who has allowed us to use her photographs to illustrate this species..
