About this book

Language: Dutch

Hoverflies are intricately patterned flies mimicking the appearance of bees, bumblebees and wasps. During the summer they can be found everywhere, from woodlands and back gardens, to the centre of towns and villages. This is the first Dutch field guide to allow identification of all hoverflies of the Netherlands and Belgium, and identification keys are included.

The book describes all 382 species currently present, or that might occur there in the near future, using over 1600 spectacular macro-photos. For each species identifying traits and ecology are described, including distribution maps and diagrams showing flight times.

Summary in Dutch:
Zweefvliegen zijn fraai getekende vliegen die wespen, bijen of hommels imiteren. Ze zijn in de zomer overal te vinden, van bos tot achtertuin tot midden in de stad. Dit is de eerste Nederlandstalige veldgids waarmee alle zweefvliegen van Nederland en België kunnen worden gedetermineerd en bevat determinatiesleutels.

Het boek beschrijft alle 382 soorten die voorkomen of nog zouden kunnen verschijnen aan de hand van meer dan 1.600 spectaculaire macrofoto’s. Voor iedere soort wordt de herkenning en ecologie beschreven, inclusief vliegtijddiagrammen en verspreidingskaarten.
