Jan Willem A. van Zuijlen and Paul L.Th. Beuk Version date: 04-02-2014 17:28

Diagnosis. Medium-sized to large (5.0-18.0 mm) flies; body strongly setose to quite hairy, and yellow to brown or dark grey in colour. Head without vibrissae; postocellar setae divergent. Wings hyaline to weakly infuscated, C without breaks. Tibiae with dorsal preapical setae.

Biology. Adults are commonly found in forests in shady humid places with low vegetation, usually on putrefying matter, including carrion, decaying fungi, excrement, and flowing sap. Larvae ofN. anilis are saprophagous, developing in rotting fungi, human faeces, dead insects, molluscs, and vertebrate animals.

General references. Czerny (1930 [general, key]), Ericson & Hellqvist (2013 [key to European species, in Swedish]), Mathis & Sueyoshi (2011 [world catalogue]), Ozerov (1998 [general, key]), Soós (1984b [catalogue]), Steyskal (1987f [general, key to genera]).

References to the local fauna. Van Zuijlen (1996c).
