The novel abdominal appendage in male sepsid flies (Diptera: Sepsidae) has a complex evolutionary history of primary gain, loss, and regain which we explore using fluorescent microscopy to compare the size, volume, and number of cells in the histoblast cell nests that produce the appendage during pupation across six genera including an ancestral outgroup which describe evolutionary history of the appendage.

Some species were more abundant in the year of a fire such as a Sepsis morphospecies (Diptera: Sepsidae, mean = 2.4, P = 0.05 for 1993 sweep samples before Bonferroni correction) and others were less abundant, such as a Herculia morphospecies (Lepidoptera: Pyralidae, mean = 0.2, P = 0.02 for light trap samples before Bonferroni correction) [TABULAR DATA FOR TABLE 3 OMITTED] and a Neoscona morphospecies (Araneae: Araneidae, mean = 2.8, P = 0.02 for 1992 sweep samples before Bonferroni correction).
