33. Family STRATIOMYIDAE

[Originally] By Norman E. Woodley

Stratiomyids or soldier flies, compose a moderately large family of Diptera that exhibit an extreme array of morphological diversity, as well as a moderate range of life histories. Stratiomyids are found throughout the world but are particularly diverse in tropical regions. Worldwide there are about 400 genera recognized at present and well over 2,000 species. In this catalog 100 genera and 420 species-group names are listed for the Australasian/Oceanian Regions.

There are no modern monographs dealing with any major portion of the family on a worldwide basis, leaving taxonomic concepts in at least some subfamilies with a decidedly regional flavor. World-level generic reviews are necessary for progress to be made in higher level taxonomy and phylogeny within the family. No adequate summary of knowledge of the taxonomy of stratiomyids is available covering the Australasian/Oceanian Regions, and there are very few generic revisions that are modern enough to allow positive identifications to be made. A few treatments of limited geographic scope (e.g., Brunetti 1923a; Bezzi 1928; James 1948, 1950b, 1962) can be used for limited areas within the regions.

Adults are generally collected in Malaise traps or by sweeping vegetation. Adult Odontomyia are usually found on flowers; adults of most other groups are normally found near larval food sources. Although it is not well documented in the literature, many stratiomyids form aerial swarms, probably for mating purposes. Larval soldier flies occupy diverse habitats, including soil and sod (Chiromyzinae), a wide variety of decaying organic matter (Beridinae, Clitellariinae, Chrysochlorinae, Hermetiinae, Sarginae), under bark (Pachygastrinae), and aquatic situations (Stratiomyinae, Nemotelinae). Larvae of Inopus rubriceps are sod and pasture pests, especially where introduced in New Zealand. Larvae of Hermetia illucens inhabit many types of decaying organic matter, and the species has been introduced by man's activities and become established in warmer areas throughout much of the world. Immature stages of most stratiomyids remain unknown.
