Abstract The pupal case of Mallophora atra Macquart from South America is described, illustrated, and compared with the South American species M. media Clements and Bennett, M. ruficauda (Wiedemann), and M. sylveirii Macquart, and the North American species M. bomboides (Wiedemann), M. fautrix Osten Sacken, M. leschenaulti Macquart, and M. orcina (Wiedemann). 
Pupal cases of three nearctic species of Machimus (Diptera: Asilidae).
The pupal cases of the Nearctic robber flies, Machimus latapex Martin, 1975, M. occidentalis (Hine, 1909), and M. prairiensis (Tucker, 1907) are described. They are compared with the previouslyExpand

The Pupal Case of a Nearctic Robber Fly, Efferia snowi (Hine, 1919) (Diptera: Asilidae)
Abstract The pupal case of the Nearctic robber fly, Efferia snowi (Hine, 1919), is described, illustrated, and compared with the pupal cases of five other Nearctic species. A key is provided to theExpand
The pupal case of a Nearctic robber fly, Diogmites contortus Bromley 1936 (Diptera: Asilidae)
TLDR
The main characteristics of the D. contortus pupal case are, abdominal segment 1 with dorsal transverse row of 30 spurs, and abdominal segments 5–7 with uninterrupted ventral row of 41–47 bristle-like spines. Expand
Tentative key to robber fly (Diptera: Asilidae) subfamilies based on pupal cases
TLDR
Analysis of recently published adult morphological data and DNA sequence data suggests that the Asilidae family consists of 14 subfamilies, with a tentative key based on known pupal cases provided for 10 of them. Expand
Review and analysis of information on the biology and morphology of immature stages of robber flies (Diptera: Asilidae).
TLDR
The recent literature is compared with pertinent pre-1972 publications and there is only limited data on the eggs (potential oviposition site in soil) and pupal cases for the Phellinae and Tillobromatinae. Expand
