Feature Expedition

Tachinidae I

SpecimensUniversity of Hawai'i Insect Museum

Contained within the large order of diptera the family Tachinidae itself is considerable in size with over 8,200 species describes and many more remaining to be discivered. In all known species they are protolean parasitoids of arthropods and occur in a wide variety of habitats. The larvae of many species in this family are parasitoids developing within a host culminating in the death of host once the larval stage is complete. The adults appearance can be extremely variable ranging from brightly colored to rather full retaining more similarity to a house fly. As we look to highlight the diversity within this family please help the UHIM transcribe our collection of Tachinidae.
