Caption: Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of Robber fly tenent setae on pulvillar pad below tarsal claw (Machimus sp.). Manx robber fly (aslo known as an assassin fly) from the family Asilidae. It was first discovered in the 1940s on the Isle of Man. They are robustly built, bristly flies with a short, stout proboscis enclosing the sharp, sucking hypopharynx. The name robber flies reflects their notoriously aggressive predatory habits They prey mainly or exclusively on other insects and usually wait in ambush and catch their prey in flight.
