Robber Flies of Kansas


Based on Fisher and Wilcox's Catalog 1997 (unpublished). As well as Geller-Grimm's distributions. This state list modified with Roy Beckemeyer's literature review for Kansas. See here. Almost all species have been verified at that site by literature. Four species marked with an asterisk were added by me. Some are estimated by the catalog range and likely occur based on presently known geographies. 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 Asilid guys apparently. I have put the new genera in [ ] under that genus.
