Species text
Miltogramma germari is a flesh fly found in dunes, sandy heaths and chalk downland. The larvae are believed to feed on the food stores of mining bees and the adults are likely to occur in habitat which supports good colonies of such bees. According to the Recorder species account it is recorded from south-west England and South Wales, but there are a records from four sites in south Essex on the Thames and Middlewick Ranges in N. Essex (D.A. Smith, county database). References
