These insects are distinctive because their hind wings are reduced to small, club-shaped structures called halteres - only the membranous front wings serve as aerodynamic surfaces.

The halteres vibrate during flight and work much like a gyroscope to help the insect maintain balance. Habitats. Diptera occur all over the world except in regions with permanent ice-cover.

They are found in most land biomes (all 14 WWF major habitat types) including deserts and the tundra. Insects are the most diverse group of Arctic animals (about 3,species), of which about 50% are Diptera.

Nearly primary types reside in the Diptera collection, in part through the acquisition of the Mesnil, Reinhard, Hull, W.R. Thompson and Garrett collections, and these types are catalogued (see Diptera Types in the Canadian National Collection of Insects).
