Anthomyiidae Root Maggots

The Anthomyiidae and the following two closely related families, Fanniidae and Muscidae, are quite similar in their development, behavior, and occasional association with cases of gastrointestinal myiasis. Both the immatures and adults are similar in appearance to muscids. As the name "root maggot" implies, most anthomyiid larvae feed on plants. The anthomyiid genus Hylemya, however, is very large, with 180 species occurring in a diversity of habitats in the Nearctic region. The gastrointestinal myiasis which they can cause generally results from the ingestion of larvae infesting vegetables or fruits.
