Chyromyidae Heleomyzidae Sphaeroceridae small dung flies Nannodastiidae. Asilidae occur in all zoogeographical regions except Antarctica. Upcoming Events Discussioninsects and people from the BugGuide Gathering in VirginiaJuly Photos of insects and people from the gathering in WisconsinJuly Photos asilidse insects and people from the gathering in VirginiaJune In general the biology of the Asilidae is still poorly known.

Again, the Therevidae commonly have fluffy setae above the mouthparts, unlike the stiff chaetae comprising the mystax of the Asilidae.

Family Asilidae – Robber Flies

Egg-laying takes place, according to the species, with three different behaviors which relate to the structure and the morphology of the abdomen.

Dalam proyek lain Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. Bugguide is hosted by: The shape is generally elongated, due to the conformation of the long tapering abdomenhowever there are also compact species with broad abdomens.

In short, the feeding behavior of larval asilids can configure as intermediate between predation and ectoparasitism. Western North American Naturalist Atelestidae Hybotidae dance flies Dolichopodidae long-legged flies Empididae dagger flies, balloon flies.

Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Wyoming. Asilidae of the Nearctic Region [unpublished draft] Fisher E. Dasypogon Eric Fisher on Asilidae classification pers. Other bristles are present on the metanotum dorsocentral bristles on the ventral episternum and at the apex of the mesoscutellum.

Alpine species occur at altitudes exceeding meters.

Unlike other lower Brachicera it bears long bristles macrochaeta useful as taxonomic characters. Bristles of this type are always present on the notopleuron notopleural bristles and, in two series, on mesonotum dorsocentral, supralar and postalar. Bolitophilidae Diadocidiidae Ditomyiidae Keroplatidae Mycetophilidae Sciaridae dark-winged fungus gnats Cecidomyiidae gall midges.

The mouthparts are short and modified for piercing-sucking. Asilidae generally occur in habitats that are open, sunny, and dry, even arid.

Celyphidae beetle-backed flies Chamaemyiidae aphid flies Lauxaniidae. Although predatory forms in the adult stage are present in other taxonomic groups of Diptera, the Asilidae are the most representative for the number of species and for uniformity of feeding behavior.

The larva is apodous, cylindrical and elongated, more or less flattened dorso-ventrally and tapered at the cephalic and caudal ends. The Prairie Naturalist 33 2: Asilidae adalah famili dalam ordo Diptera. Agromyzidae leaf miner flies Anthomyzidae Asteiidae Aulacigastridae sap flies Clusiidae lekking, or druid flies Fergusoninidae Marginidae Neminidae Neurochaetidae upside-down flies Odiniidae Opomyzidae Periscelididae Teratomyzidae Xenasteiidae.


The Asilidae are cosmopolitanwith over described species.

Typical habitats include savannahforest steppeopen steppesemi- desertmaquis shrublandand related shrubland types such as fynbos and chaparral. The life histories are poorly known. The common name for members of the family is the robber flies. Until a stable, practical classification is available, some version of the Papavero classification is probably still preferable, and I recommend using the eight subfamilies from 3 currently used on BG with no tribes recognized some tribes are apparently monophyletic but others are not, and details and relationships are controversial.

They are aggressive to the point of earning the common name, in English, of “robber flies”. The entomophagy of some species had indeed been already hypothesized by some authors of the nineteenth century, based on the findings of larvae of asilids associated with larvae of other insects, but Melin asserted that, in reality, predation was occasional and secondary to the plant-based diet.

An outline of higher-level classification In those conditions the interrupted canopy leaves space for various species of shrubs and herbaceous plants suited to Asilid styles of predation.
