|horse Fly anatomy chart
|| A drawing of a horse fly with all four limbs and both wings extended covers this chart. Overlaid on the figure is a proportions grid demonstrating body relationships. Detailed cutaway illustrations scattered around the main drawing show different levels of exoskeleton and viscera from various parts of the body. Small notations beside each body part offer a short description.
Read: The horse fly features prominent compound eyes, short antennae composed of three segments, and wide bodies. In females, the eyes are widely separated but in males they are almost touching they are often patterned and brightly colored in life but appear dull in preserved specimens. The terminal segment of the antennae is pointed and is annulated, appearing to be made up of several tapering rings. There are no hairs or arista arising from the antennae. Both head and thorax are clad in short hairs, but no bristles are on the body. The membranous forewings are clear, uniformly shaded grey or brown, or patterned.
