Arthropeina fulva is a species of Fly in the family Xylomyidae, the "wood soldier flies".British Soldierflies and Their Allies
British Soldierflies and their allies (an illustrated guide to their identification and ecology) is a book by Alan E. Stubbs and Martin Drake, published by the British Entomological and Natural History Society in 2001. A second edition was published in 2014.It is a sequel to an earlier volume, British Hoverflies: an identification guide, and covers the following families of flies, which collectively are known as the "Larger Brachycera": Acroceridae, Asilidae, Athericidae, Bombyliidae, Rhagionidae, Scenopinidae, Stratiomyidae, Tabanidae, Therevidae, Xylomyidae and Xylophagidae.
The book introduced English names for all included species, the first time this has been done in a scientific reference work for a whole group of flies.
It contains a set of photographic plates by David Wilson.Coenomyiodes edwardsi

Athericidae, the water-snipeflies
Bombyliidae, the bee-flies
Rhagionidae, the snipeflies
Scenopinidae, the windowflies

Xylophagidae, the awl-fliesList of soldierflies and allies of Great Britain
The following is a list of the larger Brachycera recorded in Britain, this includes the soldierflies and their allies.Solva (fly)
Solva is a fly genus in the family Xylomyidae, the "wood soldier flies".Solva marginata
Solva marginata also known as the drab wood-soldierfly is a species of soldier fly in the family Xylomyidae, the "wood soldier flies".Solva pallipes
Solva pallipes is a species of fly in the family Xylomyidae. It is found throughout most of North America.Adults are found in shady, wooded areas, often on tree trunks. They have also been found on Chrysanthemum plants, and are attracted to lights. Larvae have been found underneath the bark of cottonwood, Carolina poplar, Osage orange, and red mulberry trees.Stratiomyoidea
Stratiomyoidea is a superfamily of flies (order Diptera).
The antennae have a primitive structure. A characteristic morphological characteristic of Pantophthalmidae only is the size of the body: in this family are included, in fact, some species that are among the largest within the Diptera, reaching even 10 cm in wingspan.
The larvae are aquatic or terrestrial habitats and behave in most cases as scavengers at the expense of organic material in decomposition.Stratiomyomorpha
The brachyceran infraorder Stratiomyomorpha is a small group that consists primarily of the family Stratiomyidae (soldier flies) and two small related families.
The larvae are often saprophages, and many can be found in rotting wood.Tephritoidea
The Tephritoidea are a superfamily of flies. The following families are included:
Pallopteridae — flutter flies
Piophilidae — skippers
Platystomatidae — signal flies
Tephritidae — fruit flies
Ulidiidae (Otitidae) — picture-winged fliesThe Tachiniscinae, formerly ranked as the family Tachiniscidae, are now included in the Tephritidae.Xylomya
Xylomya is a fly genus in the family Xylomyidae, the "wood soldier flies". There are at least 30 described species in Xylomya.Xylomya americana
Xylomya americana is a species of fly in the family Xylomyidae.Xylomya pallidifemur
