Male Sphaerophoria scripta hoverfly with thin abdomen
Volucella inanis is one of the larger species of hoverfly found in Britain.

The following is a list of hoverfly (Syrphidae) species recorded in Great Britain.

Alan Stubbs and Steven Falk, in their 1983 work British Hoverflies,[1] divided the family into subfamilies and tribes. These subdivisions are now believed to be, to some extent, artificial groupings, not reflecting the evolutionary relationships within the family, and therefore in need of revision. However, as no replacement system is yet in place, these groupings are retained in this list.

The six unnamed species listed in Stubbs and Falk (1983)[1] are not included below.
