This fly is present in most of Europe. The adults grow up to 5–9 millimetres (0.20–0.35 in) long and can mostly be encountered from early August through late September feeding on nectar of flowers (especially of Apiaceae and Asteraceae species).
Their large compound eyes are reddish. In this quite variable species the body may be blackish or brownish. The broad abdomen is flattened and sternite 7 is ventrally folded. The large wings have wide brownish or greysh dots and the cell R5 is opened at the edge.
