51. Family SYRPHIDAE
[Originally] F. Christian Thompson & J.R. Vockeroth

Adults of the family Syrphidae, commonly called flower or hover flies, are rather conspicuous. Their size ranges from 4 mm to over 25 mm and their coloration from bright yellow or orange to dull dark black or gray with a few iridescent forms. Many syrphid flies are Batesian mimics of stinging Hymenoptera. Flower flies, as their name implies, are abundant on flowers, which are used as mating sites and energy sources. Only the microdontines are not found associated with flowers, but rather with their ant hosts.

Immature stages are found in a diverse array of habitats. Larvae of the subfamily Microdontinae are inquilines in ants' nests. Those of Syrphinae are predaceous on soft-bodied arthropods, although some may occasionally be scavengers. Those of Eristalinae can be predaceous (Pipizini), saprophagous in litter and dead wood (most Milesiini), coprophagous (some Rhingiini and Milesiini), mycetophagous (some Rhingiini), phytophagous (as borers in tubers, stems, and wood, and miners in leaves: most Rhingiini, Merodontini, some Brachyopini), aquatic filter feeders (the rat-tailed maggots, mainly Eristalini and some Brachyopini and Milesiini), or specialized inquilines in social insect nests of termites, wasps, and bees (some Volucellini and Merodontini).

The economic importance of flower flies is great. Adults are pollinators of major significance. In some agroecosystems (orchards), they out-perform native bees in pollinating crops. Larvae of the subfamily Syrphinae are important predators of many pests such as aphids, scales, thrips, and caterpillars and are rivaled only by lady-bird beetles (coccinellids) and lacewings (chrysopids) as predators useful for biological control. Some flower flies, however, are detrimental. Larvae of a few species (Merodon, Eumerus) attack bulbs and tubers of ornamentals and vegetables. Finally, a few species have been recorded as causing accidental myiasis in man.

Flower flies are abundant everywhere except in arid areas of the Old World and in the extreme southern latitudes. Although flower flies range to high latitudes in the north, they are absent from subantarctic islands and Antarctica.

Fossil Syrphidae have been studied (Hull 1945a, 1949a), but no fossils are known from the Australasian/Oceanian Regions.

The literature on the flower flies of these regions is diffuse. There are no monographic studies and only a few revisions of limited areas or genera, but flower flies are included in numerous locality lists. Recent and major works on flower flies are few and are primarily restricted to systematics. No comprehensive work on the biology of these flies has ever been published. Gilbert (1986) provided an excellent introduction, which will serve as a substitute until his book is published.
