Most syrphids feeding on gall forming aphids belong to Pipizini tribe. The biology of two species relatively abundant in Mediterranean areas of Southeastern Spain,Pipiza festiva Meigen, 1822 andHeringia heringii (Zetterstedt, 1843), is given after 3 years of detailed survey. In this paper we study the relationship of both species of syrphids with the gall-forming aphids associated with trees of the genusPistacia (Anacardiaceae). We also establish the relationship syrphid-aphid-fruit tree, the… CONTINUE READING
