Criorhina berberina (Fabricius, 1805)
Criorhina berberina is one of several species which mimic Bumblebees. With Diptera being grossly under recorded in the county, it is hard to give an accurate account of its current status. With records from Attenborough NR, Sherwood Forest CP and Dyscarr Wood, currently shown on the Nottinghamshire distribution map, Criorhina berberina is probably fairly widespread. Our thanks go to Pauline Bradford, who kindly supplied all the images shown.
