Apystomyia

provided by wikipedia EN

Apystomyia is a genus of flies in the family Apystomyiidae. This lone genus in that family contains a single species, Apystomyia elinguis, which is primarily found in California. Details of its life history are largely unknown. An extinct genus Hilarimorphites is known from the Cretaceous Burmese and New Jersey ambers.[1] Formerly placed in the Asiloidea, molecular phylogenetic studies in 2010 placed the genus unambiguously as a sister of the Cyclorrhapha within the clade Eremoneura.[2][3]
