My First Stalk-er!

Diospidae Diopsidae

I have finally found them!

Stalk-eyed fly (Diptera: Diopsidae) from Far-far Away, Hulu Langat, Selangor. Interestingly, they were found mainly on red ginger leaves. Larvae of this group are mostly decomposers of dead plant and phytophagous. Difficult to catch them? Well, the eyes possibly give them visual advantage (not a stalk-er) but they are clumsy flyers. Usually they won’t fly away far from where they are found.
