Isn't this place a site for sore eyes? Welcome. Find enclosed, less-than-witty writings, and subscript parentheticals. I talk politics, bugs, video games, bugs, literature, bugs, political economy, and bugs. Anything goes.
The flies in the family Mydidae are some of the largest flies in the world. Despite their wasp-like appearance, they pose no threat to humans. Like other flies, they are avid polinators, and predatory Mydidae species feed on pests and crop-destroying larvae. Their adult lifespan is rather short, so despite their wide spread, they aren't very commonly encountered.
