FLY ( /flɑɪ/ ) True flies are insects of the order Diptera, the name being derived from the Greek di = two, and ptera = wings. Insects of this order use only a single pair of wings to fly, the hindwings being reduced to club-like balancing organs known as halteres. Diptera is a large order containing an estimated 1,000,000 species including horse-flies, crane flies, hoverflies and others, although only about 150,000 species have been described.

Common housefly. Why is the common housefly able to perform complex and precise aerobatic maneuvers? It is because of two tiny appendages called halteres, one located behind each wing.These halteres are found on two-winged insects, such as flies, mosquitoes, and gnats. Like the pendulum of a clock, with their clubbed ends, halteres "beat in one particular direction". (Encyclopedia of Adaptations in the Natural World)The twisting of the haltere makes the fly agile and hard to catch.(g12 11 p…

Insect wings. 2nd pair absent = halteres. Wings may be membranous or scleritized. Scleritized wings may be protective elytra (in coleoptera) or tegmina (in orthoptera). leathery hemelytra in hemipterans. membranous may be covered with scales as in lepidoptera.

Was It Designed? The Haltere of the Fly  ● Why is the common housefly able to perform complex and precise aerobatic maneuvers? When hit by a gust of wind, why can the insect quickly right itself and maintain its course? The answer involves, in part, two tiny appendages called halteres, one located behind each wing. ★  Consider: A haltere is like a tiny drumstick with a knob on the end. During flight, the halteres swing up and down at the same frequency as the wings but in the opposite…

Crane fly aka "mosquito hawks", "gallinipper", "may fly" "skeeter eater", "gollywhopper" and "whapper" DO NOT KILL THESE BUGS!!!!! I used to think they were faerie

Taking a little break from Arachtober for Fly Day Friday!    I found this big crane fly lying face up on the bottom of my moth sheet. Many crane flies, including this one, are quite large (1.5 inch+ wingspan) so you can really see the halteres (little balancing knobs) that replace the second pair of wings found in other flying insects like bees and wasps. Also, erm...this poor fly appears to be missing all of its legs. That might explain why it was lying face up on the sheet...

Diptera: One pair of membranous wings,hind wings became halteres, sucking mouthparts and short antennae.

Members of the short-antenna group, including houseflies and hoverflies, consistently swing their halteres opposite, or at 180 degrees, to their wing flaps during flight. The long-antenna group, which includes mosquitoes and gnats and evolved earlier than the short-antenna group, showed variability in flight and on foot. All the flies used halteres to fly, but some swung the mallets opposite their wings; others in synchrony with their wings and still others in patterns with no clear…
