Certain species of Crabronidae (Hymenoptera) appear to be somewhat specialized syrphid hunters, e.g. Ectemnius cavifrons and E. ruficornis.
Species of the genera Bembix, Crabro and Crossocerus also often catch syrphids.

Dear all,

I am wondering if you know of any study (publication) that discusses or shows how important prey are syrphids as a group. In other words, I am looking for publications that I can refer to that show that syrphids are common prey of predaceous arthropods.

Thanks in advance!
