Global diversity of dipteran families (Insecta Diptera) in freshwater (excluding Simuliidae, Culicidae, Chironomidae, Tipulidae and Tabanidae).
Dipteran families including Asilidae, Calliphoridae, Muscidae and Tabanidae have also been found parasitized by entomopathogenic fungi (EVANS, 1982; WATSON et at., 1993; STEENBERG et al., 2001; LASTRA et al., 2006; ARAUJO & HUGHES, 2016).
From Diptera, six species from Syrphidae (Eristalis tenax, Eupeodes corollae, Melanostoma sp., Ischniodon scutellaris, Episyrphus balteatus, Eristalis smilis), two from Calliphoridae (Stomorpgina discolor, Chrysomya megacephala) one species each from Sarcophagidae (Sarcophaga sp.), Muscidae (Musca domestica), Tabanidae (Tabanus suleifrons) and Tachnidae (Prosena siberita) were recorded.

En esta zona son frecuentes entre los detritos las larvas de dipteros (Syrphidae, Culicidae, Tipulidae, Chironomidae, Drosophilidae, Tabanidae), larvas de coleopteros, ninfas de cucarachas, libelulas (en hojas mas interiores con menos materia organica), asi como orugas de mariposa de habitos semiacuaticos y los principales degradadores de la materia organica, los crustaceos Isopoda (Beuteispacher 1999).
