Black compost fly Scatopse notata, copyright Miroslav Deml.

Belongs within: Bibionomorpha.

The Scatopsoidea are a clade of flies united by wings with M1+2 fused to Rs for a distance, and M3 and im lost; at least living species also have the larval head greatly reduced (Blagoderov et al. 2002). Members of the Scatopsidae have a single-segmented palpus and five to ten antennal flagellomeres (Amorim 2009) whereas Synneuridae have a four-segmented palpus and ten to fourteen flagellomeres (Peterson & Cook 1981).
