Pipiza notata Meigen, 1822
Biology & ecology:
Meigen, 1822 in Stubbs & Falk (2002)
Status: This species appears to have declined significantly over the past 35 years, some of which may be a result of changing recorder willingness to tackle difficult taxa. Recorded from 163 hectads since 1985.
Status & conservation:
Biology: The larva of this species remains unknown, but those of other members of this genus are aphidophagous, appearing to favour aphids which secrete a waxy flocculence (woolly aphids). Adults are usually found resting on vegetation along woodland margins, occasionally visiting flowers.
