Abstract

The members of the family Rhagionidae, commonly called snipe flies, are predaceous in larval and adult stages. The adults of a few blood sucking species have been known to attack man. The larvae are found in a great variety of situations, the terrestrial forms found under bark of trees, in dung, fungi, soil, moss, and wood. The larvae of the genus Atherix, found in the Far West, differ in this respect by being aquatic in nature. The adults of this family are found in long grass, on trees, logs, and in general in moist areas of heavy foliage.
