Suborder Brachycera Asilomorpha Asiloidea Apioceridae famiia flies Apsilocephalidae Apystomyiidae Asilidae robber flies Bombyliidae bee flies Evocoidae Hilarimorphidae hilarimorphid flies Mydidae mydas flies Mythicomyiidae Scenopinidae window flies Therevidae stiletto flies. It is long and narrow conical in most species but wide, dorsoventrally flattened and short in bee mimics.

Canthyloscelidae Perissommatidae Scatopsidae minute black scavenger flies, or dung midges. Austroleptidae Bolbomyiidae Rhagionidae snipe flies. Details of wing venation determine subfamilies and lower taxa.

Puncture is followed by the injection of saliva, whose active components perform two functions: In the Northern Hemisphere, some species are even adapted to qsilidae. Typically overwinter as pupa, emerge in spring. I used this same classification in my unpublished checklist of Nearctic Asilidae 5 used by Herschel Rainey for his state lists.

Diperoleh dari ” https: Ironically, the only truly congruent classification resulting from both methodologies is one where only three subfamilies are recognized Asilinae, Laphriinae, Dasypogoninaelike the pioneering classifications of Macquart and Loew in the early s! Frequently they are aposematicimitating the livery of Hymenoptera. Inthings were changed significantly by Torsten Dikow 7 8 with publication of his PhD work.

Adults are generally medium to large in size, with an average body width of 1 to 1.

Asilidae – Wikipedia

Another problem is that some of the subfamilies recognized lack external characters useful for dichotomous keys or gestalt recognition: Particularly seen in parts of Arizona including Sedona and Phoenix.


The Asilidae are excellent flyers and, in ssilidae of fami,ia family, capture prey in flight. Western North American Naturalist The Asilidae are cosmopolitanwith over described species. Bristles of this type are always present on the notopleuron notopleural bristles and, in two series, on mesonotum dorsocentral, supralar and postalar.

Order Diptera Linnaeus, The wings are well developed, often relatively narrow for speedy flight; the alula is generally well developed, with the exception of Leptogastrinae and part of Dasypogoninae.

The proboscis is rounded in cross section or laterally or dorsoventrally compressed and is usually stout, and straight and sometimes able to penetrate through the hard integument of Coleoptera. Large robber flies may bite if mishandled forum discussion here.

Rhagionoidea Austroleptidae Bolbomyiidae Rhagionidae snipe flies. Schizophora Acalyptratae Conopoidea Conopidae thick-headed flies.

Specific studies show correlations between the floristic composition and predatory behaviour. They have classified the behavioral patterns in terms of microenvironments, ecological, and trophic factors, showing how different species of Asilidae favour particular habitats suited to particular patterns of reproduction and predation.

The combination of high biodiversity and high predatory activity leads to this family playing an important role in the ecological stability of entomofauna. The fly attacks its prey by stabbing it with its short, strong proboscis injecting the victim with saliva containing neurotoxic and proteolytic enzymes which very rapidly paralyze the victim and soon digest the insides; the fly then sucks the liquefied material through the proboscis.

The pupa is naked, as in the majority of Orthorrhapha, exarate and therefore able to move. Johann Wilhelm Meigen in an early work of erected 4 genera, 3 of which now represent subfamilies.

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.


Some genera have been found familla be monophagic, but more generally the Asilidae manifest a more or less wide polyphagia with behaviors that vary from stenophagia [7] to euriphagia.

Atelestidae Hybotidae dance flies Dolichopodidae long-legged asjlidae Empididae dagger flies, balloon flies. Dasypogon Eric Fisher on Asilidae classification pers.

Meliputi 68 genera Dioctriinae. Lihat Ketentuan Penggunaan untuk lebih jelasnya. Unlike other lower Brachicera it bears long bristles macrochaeta useful as taxonomic characters. In other cases, however, the abdomen bears a differentiated, specialized ovipositor to lay eggs in the soil or sand, or lay them in cavities within plant tissues.

Family Asilidae – Robber Flies –

The antennae are of the aristate type, composed typically of 5 segments but sometimes fromdepending on the structure of the stylus. Tipulomorpha Trichoceroidea Trichoceridae winter crane flies. Catalog of the robber flies Diptera: Cryptochetidae Lonchaeidae lance flies. Asilidqe currently includes over described species in about genera. The life histories are poorly known.

Although predatory forms in the adult stage are present in other taxonomic groups of Diptera, the Asilidae are familiw most representative for the number of species and for uniformity of feeding behavior. Key to Nearctic genera in 6. They do so apparently irrespective of any repugnatorial chemicals the prey may have at its disposal. The larvae of the first instar differ from other stages in both ethology and trophic regime.

The life cycle takes place in 1—3 years. They are aggressive to the point of earning the common name, in English, of “robber flies”. Xylophagoidea Xylophagidae awl flies.
