Species text
This is a small fly of retiring habits, generally associated with shady vegetation in damp places. The larvae probably develop in decaying vegetable material. Records are widely scattered in southern England as far north as Herefordshire and Lincolnshire with a purported record from Durham. It is most frequent in the south east of England, even within Greater London, becoming progressively scarcer in other parts of its range. There are eight known post-1960 sites (national status review in preparation). References
