Oliver (1967) found larval dipterans
from two families (Blephariceraddae and Stratiomyidae) in the diet of P.
In the Brazilian Amazon, multiple studies on frugivorous dipterans
have been conducted in the past 10 yr, advancing knowledge on the biology and ecology of Tephritidae and Lonchaeidae (Silva et al.
A preliminary study on the decomposition and dipteran
associated with exposed carcasses in an oil palm plantation in Bandar Baharu, Kedah, Malaysia.
We thank Daniel Ricardo Toro for letting us use the Applied Microbiology Laboratory, Lucimar Gomes Diaz and Professor Luciano Fiuza for their careful observations on the taxonomy of the dipterans
mutilata could potentially play an important role in the control of dipterans
(Nematocera) in the urban area of Chapala, however, it is necessary to carry out further studies to assess the impact of this species in this and other areas of Mexico.
Unlike the samples from May, dipterans
comprised smaller portions of the diet (i.
species were sampled both from wheat and weed leaves while one was recorded from weed leaves only.
Terpenes were responsible for the toxic effects reported in dipterans
If Heterothrips occurs sporadically in localized populations, and if Collembola do not pollinate Jack-in-the-pulpits, then dipterans
may serve as pollinators where Heterothrips is absent.
occurring in small numbers (fewer than 25) were not identified to species.
Other arthropods located on the foam caps of nests included (total number in parenthesis): ants (6), aquatic snails (5), spiders (4), caterpillars (3), millipedes (2) and dipterans
The shelter is probably also a means for the ants to protect the source of honeydew from competitors such as other hymenopterans and dipterans
Adults forage on aerial prey, including small dipterans
(flies), near shrubs and forest edges and over meadows, narrow roads, fields, and lakes near potential breeding sites.
Necrotic egg and hat chling remains are key factors attracting dipterans
to sea turtle (Caretta caretta, Chelonia mydas, Natator depressus) nests in Central Queensland, Australia.
3) Other dipterans
have also been implicated with causing myiasis in humans, including Cochliomyia hominivorax (Coquerel), (1) C.
