Species text
This species is largely confined to grazing marsh areas, but apparently in freshwater rather than brackish water sites. Its national distribution is centred on the Greater Thames and Suffolk with recent outposts in Sussex and Gwent. In Essex recent records have all come from the Colne/Blackwater estuaries apart from one in a greenhouse in Rochford in 1986. It appears to move inland relatively readily with Essex records from Dagnam Park (1977) and Brentwood (1946). In Falk (1991a) the fly was known from only six localities in Essex, Kent, Suffolk and Sussex. Larvae possibly develop in damp soil and the marginal zones of ponds and ditches. References
