The most diverse families were the Agromyzidae or leaf-miner flies, with 32 species, and the Chloropidae, with 31 species.
Muscidae were identified by Marcia Couri, Chloropidae by John Ismay and Milichiidae by John Swann.
In most of these studies flies of the family Chloropidae, the sister group to Milichiidae, are attracted in addition to the Milichiidae.
Entre los dipteros, las familias con mayor numero de morfoespecies fueron Dolichopodidae con 17, Muscidae con 17, Ephydridae con quince, Sciaridae con once, Tipulidae con nueve, Chironomidae con ocho y Syrphidae y Chloropidae con siete.
Families of diptera that seem to include mycophagous species are: Drosophilidae, Chloropidae, Phoridae, Mycetophilidae, Sciaridae, Tipulidae, Cecidomyiidae, and Platypezidae.
The real number of brachyceran Diptera occurring at the ABS is probably considerably greater than 563, as there are several families, such as the Chloropidae, that are poorly known.
These are reported from the dipterous families Celyphidae, Curtonotidae (as Drosophilidae), Chloropidae, Diopsidae, Lauxaniidae, Psilidae, Richardiidae, Tephritidae and various unidentified flies (Balazuc 1980; Lee & Majewski 1986; Rossi & Kotrba 2004; Rossi & Ponziani 2008; Rossi 1986, 1987; Thaxter 1901, 1902, 1917, 1918).
XIX, Diptera: Lonchaeidae, Sapromyzidae, Ephydridae, Chloropidae, Agromyzidae.
included the herbivorous flies Bibionidae, Chloropidae, and Drosophilidae, each in a different superfamily separate from Tephritidae.
The labellum of such species is superficially similar to that of flower-visiting Chloropidae of the genus Olcella and Milichiidae of the genus Paramyia, which often co-occur on flowers with ephydrids at the ABS.
