Title: Hoverfly Recording Scheme
Title abbreviated: HRS

Abstract: The hoverflies (Diptera, Syrphidae) are a family of attractive and familiar flies that we all see visiting flowers. Gardeners welcome them because many of the black-and-yellow striped species have larvae which prey on greenfly and bacause of their important role in pollination. The National Recording Scheme, launched in 1976, aims to collate information about their ecology and distribution. On this web site you can find: Information about each of the species, maps of species distributions in Great Britain, an up-to-date checklist of British species and forums for discussion of topics related to these fascinating insects.
