Ecological aspects of Sphaeroceridae
(Diptera: Acalyptratae) in dry tropical forest of the Colombian Caribbean
Dichas familias fueron: Sphaeroceridae
, Staphylinidae, Lycosidae, Cicadellidae y Chloropidae con correlaciones positivas y, solo Tenebrionidae con correlacion negativa.
Los saprofagos en el suelo del bosque estuvieron representados por las familias Forficulidae, Scarabaeidae, Phoridae (2%), Sphaeroceridae
(0.3%), Termitidae (0.3%), Nitidulidae (0.2%) y Curculionidae (0.6%).
It has variously been placed in the Calyptratae (Pont 1980: 713); or as a possible transitional family between acalyptrate and calyptrate flies, and probably closest to the Scathophagidae (as Cordyluridae) (van Emden 1950); or as related to families of acalyptrate flies, including Sphaeroceridae
(as Borboridae) (Austen 1936) and Heleomyzidae (Sphaeroceroidea) (McAlpine 1989: 1484).
(42%) was the dominant family in dung baited traps, followed by Cecidomyiidae (14%) and Phoridae (12%).
Systematics of Bitheca, a new genus of new world Sphaeroceridae
Additionally, species of Piophilidae, Phoridae, Stratiomyiidae, Ulidiidae, Sphaeroceridae
, Sepsidae, and Syrphidae have been recorded to feed on carcasses and cadavers (Catts & Goff 1992; Vasconcelos et al.
1999), including other scarab beetles (Howden 1955) and specialized phoretic Diptera in the family Sphaeroceridae
. The association between Scarabaeus L.
On the backs of beetles that were walking along the surface of the sand, those rolling balls, and those buried with a ball, several flies were observed that belong to the genus Ceroptera close to rufitarsis Meigen (Diptera: Sphaeroceridae
); these flies stayed on the beetle's bodies, even during abrupt movements.
