The Sichote-Alin Biosphere Reserve (Russian Far East) reflects brightly nature features

of the Central Sikhote-Alin. Its flora and fauna has attracted researchers for many

decades. Little was known on the hover flies of the reserve before our field works in

1982. Later Brachyopa primorica, Brachyopa violovitshi, Chalcosyrphus admirabilis,

Cheilosia richterae, Cheilosia polja, Cheilosia parafasciata, Melanostoma boreomontanum,

Neocnemodon tsherepanovi, Pipiza aurea, Pipiza mutini, Pipiza nielseni, Sphegina

carbonaria, Sphegina tenuifemorata, Sphegina verae, Xylota sichotana were described

based on the collected material. As to other information on syrphids it has been

published as well (Mutin, 2012, 2017). The syrphid collections made in the reserve in

recent years allow the compilation of a fauna list. At present 258 species of 68 genera

have been collected. The reserve is the most northern location recorded for Graptomyza

subflavonotata, Ferdinandea luteola, Neocnemodon simplicipes. The coniferous-deciduous

forests of the Eastern macroslope Sikhote-Alin are the most fully investigated,with 234

species found there. Most of them were recorded near the Tikhaya Cordon, where our

stationary studies were conducted in 1982. The vast territory of the reserve, which

belongs to the Columbus River Basin (western macroslope of Sikhote-Alin), is the least

surveyed one, and only 67 species have been found there. Some of them (Eristalis

cryptarum, Sericomyia jakutica, Chalcosyrphus carbonus, Pseudopocota stackelbergi) have

not been found in other places of the reserve yet. The coastal part of the reserve,

occupied by oak forests and meadows, has long been subject to human influence, a total

of 82 species are known from here. Sphaerophoria scripta is found only here, within the
