Seasonal habits of predation and prey range in aphidophagous silver flies (Diptera Chamaemyiidae), an overlooked family of biological control agents.
TLDR
The results of this study add baseline knowledge on seasonal habits of predation and prey range of aphidophagous Chamaemyiidae and may be helpful for biological control purposes.
Leucopis glyphinivora Tanasijtshuk (Diptera: Chamaemyiidae), a new aphidophagous biocontrol agent; development, survival and comparison with Aphidoletes aphidimyza Rondani (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae)
TLDR
A longer development time for L. glyphinivora in the larval stage could be an advantage for biocontrol by providing more time to exert predation pressure against aphids, however, this may be offset by the lower survival rate found in the silver fly larvae.
Leucopis glyphinivora, a potential aphidophagous biocontrol agent? Predation and comparison with the commercial agent Aphidoletes aphidimyza
TLDR
In conclusion, this study provides useful insight on L. glyphinoivora as an efficient aphid predator but more research is needed to establish its potential for biological control.
On the identity of Leucopis (Diptera Chamaemyiidae) described by Camillo Rondani: a revision of eight silver fly species
TLDR
Overall, concerning the twelve species of Chamaemyiidae described by Camillo Rondani, nine of them are still considered valid species and the identity of the other Leucopis species described by RondANI is estabilished.
First Quantification of Courtship Behavior in a Silver Fly, Leucopis palumbii (Diptera: Chamaemyiidae): Role of Visual, Olfactory and Tactile Cues
TLDR
Analysis of courtship and mating displays, magnitude of male-male sexual interactions and role of female-borne cues evoking male courtship in Leucopis palumbii Rondani contributes to understanding the role of visual, olfactory and tactile channels among sensory modalities used by aphidophagous Chamaemyiidae during sexual communication.
