Information on Robber Flies: Stratiomyomorpha Stratiomyoidea Pantophthalmidae timber flies Stratiomyidae soldier flies Xylomyidae wood soldier flies. The life histories are poorly known. Until recently, 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 They consist of a strongly sclerotized proboscis which includes the labium and maxillae which form a food canal, the labrum and a piercing organ, the hypopharynx.

The life cycle takes place in 1—3 years. More species need to be sampled for phylogenetic study — especially those with DNA sequencing data — even though total evidence analysis has so far yielded conflicting results. In some asilids, the stylus can be monoarticolate or absent. 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.

The abdomen consists of visible segments preceding the genitalia in males, but the eighth segment is sometimes entirely or partially concealed, and terminal forming the ovipositor.

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

The larvae of the first instar differ from other stages in both ethology and trophic regime.

Retrieved 10 January A combined total evidence analysis was then performed, adding DNA sequencing data from 77 of the original spp. Genera not yet in the guide [per 3 ]: Other bristles are arranged on the ocellar tubercle.

The postembryonic development consists of four larval stages instars and one pupa. Egg-laying takes place, according to the species, with three different behaviors which relate to the structure and the morphology of the abdomen.

Adults are generally medium to large in size, with an average body width of 1 to 1. The Asilidae are the robber fly family, also called assassin flies.

The scape and pedicel are generally relatively short and hairy; the third segment or first flagellomere has an oval or oblong shape, is generally longer than the two basal segments, and bears a stylus generally asilidas of two segments, of which the basal is very short. Larvae often predatory, consuming eggs and larvae of other insects in decaying matter.
