Root-maggot Flies

Lat. “Anthomyiidae“
family of suborder “Brachyceran Flies“
1 family, 8 species

This summary provides information on the characteristics and classification of flies in the Anthomyiidae family. These flies are generally small or moderate in size, with certain physical traits such as apical hypopleural bristles on the thorax and a straight median vein in the wings. There are several genera within this family, including Anthomyia, Botanophila, Hylemya, and Phorbia, among others. It is noted that females of many species within this family are currently unknown.

Description
#

For terms see Morphology of Diptera These flies are small or moderate in size. Hypopleural bristles found on the sides of the thorax are apical. The anal vein of the wing reaches the margin of the wings (except in Chelisia). The median vein is straight, not curved towards the anterior alar margin. Three pairs of postsutural dorsocentral bristles almost always are present. The first segment of the posterior tarsi are on the lower side near the base with minute bristles. The sternopleuron lower side often has short, soft hairs. Eyes in the male in most cases are close-set or contiguous. Females of many species are not known as of yet.
