Laphriinae

Andrenosoma fulvicaudum, copyright Tom Murray.


Belongs within: Asilidae.
Contains: Atomosini.

The Laphriinae are a group of robber flies lacking a stylus on the antenna (Wood 1981).

Characters (from Wood 1981): Antenna blunt apically, without stylus, or with one or two abruptly tapered short microsegments. Palpus two-segmented. Wing with R2+3 joining R1 proximal to end of R1, with cell r thus separated from wing margin; crossvein m-cu present; thus apex of cell bm closed by three veins. Male terminalia rotated 180° permanently.
