Arkansas Robber Flies


List based on prediction from the April 1997 draft list of E. M. Fisher and J. Wilcox.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Not all species have been verified for Arkansas but may occur based on presently known geographies. Subtribes are not shown. The large Efferia genus has been split into new genera by South American Asilid scientist Jorge Artigas. This split is not accepted by all fly guys apparently. I have put the new genera in [ ] under that genus. Underlined species are linked to pictures. Some are at Giff Beaton's site or at http://www.bugguide.net. Some are on local pages. Some genera are linked to images that depict non-local species in order to show the form of that genus where other photos are not available for our own species.

The Arkansas list is more complete obviously than several of the other state lists because of the direct observation Norm and Cheryl Lavers and I have done over the past years. Some species have still not been seen directly by us nonetheless. See the Virginia state list for a very studied list as well.
