The Tachininae are a poorly defined group of parasitic flies whose females possess a uterus and deposit eggs ready to hatch; the majority of species do not oviposit directly on the host itself but scatter eggs in suitable habitats with the larvae then waiting to encounter a suitable host. Members of the genus Ormia that parasitise orthopterans locate singing males by means of tympanic organs on the enlarged prosternum and fire eggs in the direction of the sound (Wood & Zumbado 2010). Male terminalia of Tachininae usually have the surstyli widely separated and syntergosternite 7 + 8 is often large and bulbous (Wood 1987). Members of the tribe Tachinini have crossed inner verticle bristles, a bean- or kidney-shaped first flagellomere, bare prosternum and setose hind coxa (Wood & Zumbado 2010).
