Stilt & stalk fly study group

This scheme covers two superfamilies of acalyptrates: Nerioidea (families Pseudopomyzidae and  Micropezidae) and Diopsoidea (families Tanypezidae, Strongylophthalmyiidae, Megamerinidae and Psilidae) with a total of 39 species.

The five small families covered by this recording scheme tend to be elongate species with long, slender legs. They include some little-known and rare species as well as others in the Micropezidae and Psilidae that are more familiar.

The identification literature is dispersed in small papers, mainly by J.E. Collin, which although old are still workable.
