Dryomyza anilis (Fallén, 1820
This is a common and widespread species over much of the UK, but especially in western areas. Its range extends well into Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, but it seems to be surprisingly absent from Lincolnshire. No doubt overlooked in Nottinghamshire despite its large size and orange colouration, Dryomyza anilis is common in the shadier sections of Sherwood Forest and there are recent records from Clumber Park and also Netherfield Lagoons.
