Notes

provided by EOL authors

The Family Carnidae is a family consisting of very small flies, most of them between 1 - 2 mm in length. As "Carnidae online" says:

"propably due to their small size, they have not attracted a great degree of study"

This means that the Family Carnidae is not very well known. An exception to this is a parasitic species of Carnidae that targets birds, and as you can imagine, there were quite a few studies carried out on that particular species.
