Sciaridae


 

Sciaridae: Sciarids (figs. 46, 47) are small (1.4-1.7 mm), delicate flies and are usually gray to black. Antennae are long and many-segmented. Eyes are dark and the abdomen pointed. Wings (fig. 46A) have no cells or cross veins in the middle, but each wing has a distinctly forked vein. The larva (fig. 46B) has a complete head capsule and soft skin.
