Eastern Tabanidae


Working list of the eastern Tabanids prepared from the Horseflies and Deerflies of Georgia, Beshear and Howell, 1985 and from the Horse and Deer Flies of Arkansas, Carlton and Lancaster 1995. The Georgia paper included seasonal information and that is included below after the GA symbol. Numbers in parentheses are county numbers for Georgia and Arkansas. They are unknown for other states. The Arkansas paper listed adjacent states and it had about twenty species that had not been collected in Arkansas yet but were expected. The Georgia paper also included several subspecies which are noted. There are likely further species to add from the extremes of the eastern states and from local species. These will be added as I recognize them. Underlined species did not appear in the original Nearctica list.

 

Image links are added where available, mostly from http://www.bugguide.net at this time. Including the Stickland's wonderful shots. And some states in blue are bugguide photo records.
