Species text
This robberfly has a wide distribution from southern England to the Moray Firth area of Scotland. It is generally a woodland species, especially ancient woods, where it is most usually found on foliage along woodland rides. Small moths appear to be the favoured prey (Stubbs & Drake, 2001). In Essex prior to 1970 this woodland species had only been recorded in Epping Forest and 'Colchester' (Harwood, 1903), but since then there have been occasional records from a number of scattered localities.
