Diptera (plant parasitic flies)
Diptera have only one pair of wings. The second pair is reduced to the "halters", small club-shaped appendages which vibrate during the flight and help to stabilize the body. Important groups of plant pests are, for example, included in the families of fruit flies (Tephritidae), leafminers (Agromyzidae) and gall midges (Cecidomyiidae).
To navigate among the pages of these groups use the box on the top right. Of course, you always have the option of using the wiki search function.
This group refers to plant pests only, for other groups of Diptera see:
• medical/veterinary Diptera
• Diptera (weed bioagents)
