[Originally] By Neal L. Evenhuis

Platystomatidae is one of the largest families of acalyptrate Diptera and contains some of the most morphologically bizarre forms in all of Diptera. Over 1,000 species have been described, of which almost 500 are recorded from the Australasian/Oceanian Regions, compared with 259 from the Oriental, 235 from the Afrotropical, 77 from the Palearctic, 41 from the Nearctic, and 29 from the Neotropical. It is highly certain that the center of distribution of the family is the Old World tropics.

Adults have been recorded by McAlpine (1973) as attracted to flowers, decaying fruit, excrement, and decomposing snails. They are often found on tree trunks. Males often wave their wings in display in courtship behavior. Immatures are found on fresh and decaying vege­tation, carrion, human corpses, and root nodules of legumes. The larva of an Australian species of the genus Euprosopia has been observed eating a coleopterous pupa, the larvae of Elassogaster linearis (as sepsoides) have been recorded attacking egg pods of Locusta migratoria in the Philippines and Papua New Guinea, and Trigonosoma decorum (de Meijere) has been recorded feeding on human lesions (Steyskal 1971b).
