Remarks: This species was listed as recorded from Egypt by Steyskal & El-Bialy (1967) and Dirickx (1994), but no specimens have been found. On distributional grounds, it certainly could occur in Egypt. It usually flies among and through tall ground vegetation ( Speight 2017), and visits flowers of the Umbelliferae ( Carles-Tolrá, 2006)  .
