Biology and notes. Habromyia lipoflava  is mainly associated with Andean flora ( Arroyo et al 1982), such as Cerastium arvense  L., Oxalis compacta Gillies ex Hook. & Arn.  , Calandrinia affinis Gillies ex Arn.  , Discaria nana (Clos) Benth. & Hook. ex Weberb.  , Azorella madreporica Clos  and L. acaulis  ( Arroyo et al., 1982). In northern Chile (i.e. Socoroma), H. lipoflava  visits the ornamental species Chrysanthemum  spp. (R. Barahona-Segovia, pers. obs.). This fly can be observed frequently at high altitudes (2,000 m.a.s.l.).

Conservation status. LC; EOO = 78,181 km 2; AOO = 60 km 2 and 14 localities (or subpopulations).
