Robber Flies of British Columbia


Based on Fisher and Wilcox's Catalog 1997 (unpublished) and Dr. Canning's work in BC. Most of these species have been verified by Dr. Cannings. 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 apparently. I have put the new genera in [ ] under that genus.
