Abstract:James (1936) proposed a classification of the Nearctic Stratiomyinae, based particularly on antennal structure and wing venation. Although key presented in that work requires some modification, and some details, involving particularly generic reassignment of some species referred to Odontomyia, need to be reconsidered, subsequent experience with Nearctic as well as exotic forms seems to indicate that the classification in basically sound. The greatest gaps in our understanding these generic complexes are, perhaps, the lack of fossil evidence and the fragmentary knowledge of immature stages.

- Annals of the Entomological Society of America is published in January, March, May, July, September, and November. Annals especially invites submission of manuscripts that integrate different areas of insect biology, and address issues that are likely to be of broad relevance to entomologists. Articles also report on basic aspects of the biology of arthropods, divided into categories by subject matter: systematics; ecology and population biology; arthropod biology; arthropods in relation to plant diseases; conservation biology and biodiversity; physiology, biochemistry, and toxicology; morphology, histology, and fine structure; genetics; and behavior.
