are thought of as having aquatic larval stages, with larvae inhabiting moist or saturated soils around lakes, streams, ponds, and even roadside ditches; however, Wilson (1969) collected several larval specimens of serious pest species from the soil and debris of mostly dry hardwood hammocks in an alluvial forest in Louisiana.
While in the field together they developed some novel collecting techniques for Tabanidae
, one of which involved Pamela driving the vehicle in extra-low ratio while Brian would stalk along at the back and yell--STOP--followed by a crash as he swiped at a tabanid.
Seventeen of these were common to both the Kiuic and the Tabi areas: Tabanidae
, Stratiomyidae, Asilidae, Culicidae, Mycetophilidae, Tachinidae, Muscidae, Tipulidae, Anthomyiidae, Bombyliidae, Tanypezidae, Syrphidae, Sciaridae, Pipunculidae, Chironomidae, Dolichopodidae, and Conopidae.
Eventually, black flies, and other hematophagous insects of the Culicidae, Psychodidae, Ceratopogonidae, and Tabanidae
families, were collected.
Sarcophagidae), Ceroxys latisculus (Loew) (Otitidae), and unidentified taxa of Chironomidae, Tachinidae, Scathophagidae, Tabanidae
, and Dolichopodidae.
Diptera were the most-frequent insects eaten by willow flycatchers in southern Nevada and western Arizona" comprising 39% of prey and composed of a variety of families including Tabanidae
and Dolichopodidae (Wiesenborn & Heydon 2007).
