Tropidia is a genus hoverflies, from the family Syrphidae, in the order Diptera.
Syritta is a genus of hoverflies, family Syrphidae.
Xylota is a Holarctic genus of hoverflies similar in structure to the related genera Chalcosyrphus and Brachypalpoides. As the larvae are saprophytic they're usually found in rotting wood. The adult flies are generally associated with woodland and woodland edges and can often be seen running over the upper sides of leaves. Unlike other syrphids the adults of many species rarely visit flowers preferring instead to gather pollen from leaf surfaces. There are over 100 described species of which 12 can be found in Europe. Seven species have been recorded in Britain.
Temnostoma is a genus of hoverflies. The larvae of some species feed on the wood of deciduous trees.
Criorhina is a genus of hoverflies.
Blera is a genus of hoverflies. It is primarily a North American genus, though there are 3 species from Europe.
Chalcosyrphus is a genus of hoverflies in the subfamily Eristalinae. Many species exhibit some degree of mimicry of various sawflies and other hymenopterans and are often brightly coloured or metallic in hue. The adults are similar in structure and behavior to the related genus Xylota but differ in larval morphology. They can be found throughout Europe, Asia, North America and South America and seem to prefer damper, boggy habitats. The larvae are saproxylic feeders in rotten wood in these habitats.
Sphegina is a genus of small, slender hoverflies. They are widespread throughout Eurasia and North America. In flight they seem to have long hind legs which they often carry hanging down, making them resemble sphecid or ichneumonid wasps. Adult Sphegina are usually found in damp and shady habitats close to water in forested areas, and several species can often be found together. They often feed on white and yellow flowers of Apiaceae, Ranunculaceae, Asteraceae, and Rosaceae like Crataegus, Sorbus, and Sorbaria. Larvae nest in the sap of living and dead trees or in decaying cambium under tree bark lying in water or other damp conditions. The larvae of some species have been discovered in the tunnels of other xylophagous insects.
Pocota is a genus hoverflies, from the family Syrphidae, in the order Diptera.
The Milesiini is a large and diverse tribe of hoverflies. They mimic wasps or hornets.
Graptomyza is a genus of hoverflies.
Neoascia metallica is a species of Hoverfly in the family Syrphidae.

Chalcosyrphus piger is a species of syrphid fly in the family Syrphidae.
Sphicosa is a genus of flies in the family Empididae.
Tropidia flavipicta is a species of hoverfly in the family Syrphidae.
