Platypezidae

Smoke flies are 2-5 mm long, usually black or brown, and with the tarsi on the hind legs distinctly enlarged. Most species are found in damp woods associated with decaying organic matter and fungi. Some species are called smoke flies because they are attracted to the smoke from open wood fires. The common species in the USA associated with smoke are Micro-sania imperfecta, the eastern smoke fly, and M. occidentalis, the western smoke fly. Although they are not common, adults and larvae may be found in wet and decaying organic matter indoors.
