), Sarcodexia innata (Diptera: Sarcophagidae), Onthophagus sp.
Likewise, Brian developed an interest in the 'Rhagionidae' during the same period, and published his first paper on the group in the same year (Stuckenberg 1955b).
In 1965 Brian published a major paper dealing with the Rhagionidae he collected during his two expeditions to Madagascar (Stuckenberg 1965).
In 1965 and 1966 Brian made research visits to various European museums in Austria, Greece, Switzerland, Germany and the United Kingdom, to study types of 'Rhagionidae' and for his on-going revision of Old World Lauxaniidae genera.
In 1973 Brian helped sort out the heterogeneous muddle of diverse brachyceran flies that at that time represented the Rhagionidae (Stuckenberg 1973).
Cleary these species are adapted to nectarivory, although the floral hosts involved and their co-evolution with the flies remain unknown.1 Later Brian provided additional examples of rostrum elongation as a notable adaptation in various families of Diptera, including the Rhagionidae, Tanyderidae, Sciaridae and Ceratopogonidae that are principally associated with the specialised flora of the Cape region of South Africa (Kirk-Spriggs & Stuckenberg 2009: 158-159).
One gull consumed terrestrial invertebrates from five individual orders and seven identified families, including: Hymenoptera: Formicidae (ants), Diptera: Rhagionidae
(snipe flies), Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae (scarab beetles), Coleoptera: Elateridae (click beetles), Coleoptera: Carabidae (ground beetles), Lepidoptera: Noctuidae (noctuid moths) and Isopoda: Armadillidiidae (pill bugs).

Wormlions were once placed in the Family Rhagionidae, but Nagatomi (1977) gave them family status.
