Oklahoma Robber Flies


List based on prediction from the April 1997 draft list of E. M. Fisher and J. Wilcox.

We are expanding our studies into this state. Not all species have been verified for Oklahoma but may occur based on present information. Subtribes are not shown. The large Efferia genus has been split into new genera by South American Asilid scientist Jorge Artigas. This split is not accepted by all fly guys. I have put the new genera in [ ] under that genus. Underlined species are linked to pictures. Many are at Giff Beaton's site. Some are on local pages. Some genera are linked to images that depict non-local species in order to show the form of that genus where other photos are not available for our own species.

Maps for OK species are mainly literature records for now. These are linked here from the date of description. Counties will be added as they are recognized further. Blue dots are for literature records. Blue and yellow dots are from documented photos at bugguide.net. Yellow records in Texas county OK are almost all from Kurt Schaefer's work.
