|A very large
Hoverfly and one which we believe is still rare in
Nottinghamshire. Volucella zonaria is another of
the Hornet mimics, but much larger than the impressive Volucella
inanis. This one turned in a Mapperly garden in
early August 2010 (possible seventh county record) and
was feeding in company with two V. inanis.
Details of the known Nottinghamshire records of Volucella zonaria which have been made known to us following a request for information include single adults at Attenborough NR 2007 (per Richard Rogers); Woodthorpe 2008 (per J. Ziskind); Wollaton 2008 (J. Clough); Attenborough NR 2009 (per Richard Rogers) and Cotgrave 2010 (C. Howat).
