The present work is divided into four parts. The first part introduces the economic importance, biological and ecological characters, and specimen collection of syrphids. In the second part, a review is given of the taxonomical history of syrphids both in China and abroad, as well as a description of the morphological characters and glossaries commonly used in describing the species.
