Robber flies have stout, spiny legs and they have three simple eyes ocelli in a characteristic depression on the top of their head between their two large compound eyes. Though they are a very characteristic group for such a large family, the Asilidae may easily be confused with the related and less widely known family Therevidae.

Meliputi 68 genera Dioctriinae. However, the highest levels of biodiversity are ramilia warm climates; tropical or subtropical and arid or semi-arid regions tend to have the greatest variety of species, followed by areas where rainfall is highly seasonal. 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.

Particularly seen in parts of Arizona asilkdae Sedona and Phoenix. Subfamili biasanya dibagi sebagai berikut:. Alpine species occur at altitudes exceeding meters. Larvae often predatory, consuming eggs and larvae of other insects in decaying matter.


Asilidae – Wikipedia

The postembryonic development consists of four larval stages instars and one pupa. Camillidae Curtonotidae quasimodo flies Diastatidae bog flies Ephydridae shore flies Drosophilidae vinegar and fruit flies. In general the family attacks a very wide range of prey, including asilida flies, beetlesbutterflies and mothsvarious beesants asilidas, dragon and damselfliesichneumon waspsgrasshoppersand some spiders.

With regard to interspecific trophic relationships, there is a large number of reports on the prey captured by Asilidae. Apioceridae flower-loving flies Apsilocephalidae Apystomyiidae Asilidae robber flies Bombyliidae bee flies Evocoidae Hilarimorphidae hilarimorphid flies Mydidae mydas flies Mythicomyiidae Scenopinidae window flies Therevidae stiletto flies.

The prey is caught with the tarsi and immobilized as a result of the paralysis caused by the injection of saliva. Asilidae generally occur in habitats that are open, sunny, and dry, even arid. Less certain, however, is the mechanism of implementing entomophagy: The legs are relatively long and strong, with many macrochaetes performing a raptatorial function. Lalat Asilidae memiliki kaki yang kuat serta berduri, dan mereka memiliki tiga mata tunggal ocelli dalam suatu lekukan khusus di atas kepala mereka di antara dua mata majemuk besar.

The integument is covered with thick hair, especially on the head and thorax and liveries are often showy, with colors ranging from brown aslidae black to grey, sometimes in contrast with other colors such as red and yellow. Syrphidae hoverflies Pipunculidae big-headed flies. The life histories are poorly known.

Asilidae currently includes over described species in about genera. The pupa is naked, as in the majority of Orthorrhapha, exarate and therefore able to move. The Prairie Naturalist 33 2: They are aggressive to the point of earning the common name, in English, of “robber flies”. His morphology-only analysis of spp. 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.


Until asilidaee, most workers have favored a version of the Papavero classification ; see recent updates in the Catalogue of Neotropical Diptera or the Manual of Neotropical Diptera, both Bristles of this type are always present on the notopleuron notopleural bristles and, in two series, on mesonotum dorsocentral, supralar and asiilidae.

Contributed by Troy Bartlett on 16 February, – The larvae of the first instar differ from other familiaa in both ethology and trophic regime. Thaumaleidae solitary midges Simuliidae black flies Ceratopogonidae biting midges Chironomidae non-biting midges. Suborder Brachycera Asilomorpha Asiloidea Apioceridae flower-loving flies Apsilocephalidae Apystomyiidae Asilidae robber flies Bombyliidae bee flies Evocoidae Hilarimorphidae hilarimorphid flies Mydidae mydas flies Mythicomyiidae Scenopinidae window flies Therevidae stiletto flies.

Specific studies show correlations between the floristic composition and predatory behaviour. Ptychopteromorpha Ptychopteridae phantom crane flies Tanyderidae primitive crane flies.

Meliputi 12 genera Laphriinae. Cryptochetidae Lonchaeidae lance flies. Synonyms and other taxonomic changes. Johann Wilhelm Meigen in an early work of erected 4 genera, 3 of which now represent subfamilies. Bibionomorpha Bibionoidea Bibionidae march flies, lovebugs.
