On bright sunny days the flies (Plate I) may be seen, here and there, sunning themselves on the upper sides of leaves, making short runs from side to side while moving their wings, each alternately, backwards and forwards. Where there is honey-dew they go to feed, and females may be seen on the host-plant, searching for flowers in which to oviposit.
