"Volucella" is a genus of large, broad bodied, dramatic hover-flies. They have distinctive aristas and the face is extended downwards. [cite book|author=Coe, R.L.|year=1953 |title=Diptera: Syrphidae, Handbooks for the Identification of British Insects Vol 10 Pt 1|pages=98pp |publisher=Royal Entomological Society of London] They are strongly migratory. and males are often territorial. Adults feed on nectar of flowers and are often seen sunning on leaves. The [larva] e of most species live in nests of bumble bees and social wasps, where they are detritivores and larval predators.
