39. Family THEREVIDAE

[Originally] by Michael E. Irwin & Leif Lyneborg

Flies of the family Therevidae are nearly worldwide in distribution, occurring in all geographical regions except Antarctica. The Australasian/Oceanian Therevidae are poorly known. A total of 327 species and 25 genera are herein recognized as valid; many additional undescribed genera and species occur in these regions. Some species from these regions have heretofore been assigned to Thereva, Psilocephala Zetterstedt, and Dialineura Rondani. These genera, as defined by Irwin & Lyneborg (1981), are solely Holarctic in distribution and are not found in the Australasian/Oceanian Regions. A single species of Thereva was introduced into Hawai`i from California as a potential biological control agent but did not become established (Evenhuis 1982a); it is included in the catalog. Genera listed in this catalog are highly conservative and many species have temporarily been assigned to the category of "unplaced species." Around 50% (162) of the 327 valid species listed here are placed in the genus Anabarhynchus. The genus Clesthentia is considered not to belong to the family Therevidae. It is listed in this catalog in the family Apsilocephalidae.

Therevid bioecology is poorly understood. Therevids inhabit a wide variety of environments with a dominant proportion occupying arid and semiarid zones. Adults are not considered to be predaceous; most imbibe water and some take nourishment from insect excretions/secretions or plant nectar/exudates. Adults are diurnal and often alight in sunny patches on paths, males usually awaiting passing females. Some adults, especially of the genus Agapophytus, perch on tree trunks while others (e.g., Ectinorhynchus) can be observed hovering in abbreviated swarms above and among vegetation. Some (e.g., Platycarenum and some species of Anabarhynchus) frequent coastal dunes. In arid environments, adults often concentrate around water sources. A few species of therevids have been regarded as mimics of various wasp models (Nicholson 1927).

Ovipositional and egg-hatching sequences have been recorded by Irwin (1976, 1977). Females lay between 25 and 90 eggs (M.E. Irwin, unpubl.). Five instars are known, the last of which can pupate or diapause. Therevids are usually univoltine, but cases where 2 or more years are needed to complete a life cycle are known (K. Spitzer, pers. comm.). The active snakelike larvae usually burrow into and through sandy and sandy-loam soils and litter, moving rapidly underground. They are voracious predators, even cannibals, feeding on a large variety of fossorial arthropods and earthworms, preferring larvae of Coleoptera, Lepidoptera, and Diptera. The pupal stadium lasts for about 10 days, depending on species and environmental conditions.

Members of the family Therevidae play an important, although as yet unascertained, role in the suppression of actual and potential fossorial target-pest larvae in agroecosystems and should be considered as existing or latent biological control agents.
