Episyrphus balteatus (De Geer, 1776)
Diptera: Syrphidae
Common name: Marmalade hoverfly

Episyrphus balteatus, sometimes called the marmalade hoverfly, is a relatively small hoverfly (9–12 mm) of the Syrphidae family, widespread throughout the Palaearctic region, which covers Europe, North Asia and North Africa.
E. balteatus can be found throughout the year in various habitats, including urban gardens, visiting flowers for pollen and nectar. It is among the very few species of flies capable of crushing pollen grains and feeding on them. The larva is terrestrial and feeds on aphids.
