Volucella zonaria, the hornet mimic hoverfly, is a European species of hoverfly. In Great Britain, it was only known from two specimens prior to 1940, so was regarded as rare. Since then, it has become increasingly widespread in many parts of the South and South East England, often in association with parks and gardens, where adults are usually seen visiting flowers. Elsewhere in England, only a few scattered records exist. The larvae live as commensals in nests of wasps of the genus Vespula. Like all Volucella, the adults are migratory.
