Species text
Lispe loewi is a muscid fly with about 15 known sites since 1960 widely scattered in England as far north as Cumbria. However the vast majority of records are from the Essex/Thames coastal marshes. It is found on the surface of mud around pools and ditches in saline situations. Larvae develop in organically rich sand and mud, including beneath mats of the alga Entomophora and are carnivorous.
