The Info List - Hilarimorphidae


--- Advertisement ---



The Hilarimorphidae or hilarimorphid flies are a family of Diptera. They are placed in the superfamily Asiloidea, though some considerable doubt exists, but the consensus is that they are most closely related to the Bombyliidae. Most species are nearctic.[1][2] Species[edit]
