Scirpus maritimus L. (= Bulboschoenus maritimus (L.) Palla) is regularly visited by a number of syrphid flies including Lejops vittata (Mg,). Crop and gut contents analyses revealed that some of these flies feed for some time (almost) exclusively on the pollen of the Sea Club-Rush, but there is as yet no conclusive evidence that Lejops (or any other syrphid for that matter) is an effective pollinator of this plant species.
