Tetanops myopaeformis (von Röder, 1881) - (sugarbeet root maggot)

This picture-winged fly is a serious pest of sugarbeet in North America. It feeds on the roots of plants from the family Amaranthaceae and has adapted to sugarbeet when this crop was introduced into North America. The feeding damage of the larvae results in yield losses and possible infections with pathogens. The adults are black, about the size of houseflies.
