  • This study deals with the fire-adapted behaviour of three Australian fly species on freshly burnt areas in West- ern Australia. The smoke fly, Microsania australis Collart (Platypezidae), swarms in smoke plumes. Our field studies present new notes about the ecology of Microsania, especially with respect to its ecological niche. Additionally, Hypocerides nearcticus Borgmeier (Phoridae) aggregated on burnt sites immediately after the fire forming distinct swarms outside smoke plumes, relatively… CONTINUE READING
