Scaeva pyrastri



Four species of this genus of Syrphini hoverflies have been recorded in the UK. These are large hoverflies in comparision to other Syriphini species. However, two are considered to be accidental migrants, and a third is very scarce and is mostly found in Southern England. Scaeva pyrastri is resident and common in gardens and waste land.
