Haematobosca stimulans, copyright Janet Graham.

Belongs within: Azeliinae.
Contains: Neomyia, Mesembrina, Morellia, Musca.

The Muscinae are a group of house flies with a plumose arista, the plumes being more dense (sometimes exclusively) on the upper side (Fan 1992). The lower calypter is broad and posteriorly subtruncate, and the inner corner extends slightly under the scutellum at rest. The stable flies of the genus Stomoxys and horn flies Haematobia and Haematobosca have the proboscis hardened into a stabbing organ for piercing skin. The palpus is about as long as the proboscis in Haematobia and Haematobosca but considerably shorter in Stomoxys. The arista bears both dorsal and ventral plumes in Haematobosca but dorsal plumes only in Haematobia (Couri 2010).
