Diptera

Diptera Il nome fa riferimento al numero di ali di cui sono forniti questi insetti, e deriva dal greco antico δίς, ds, due volte e πτερόν, ptern, ala. I Ditteri (Diptera, Linnaeus, 1758) costituiscono un ordine di insetti terrestri o idrofili, frequentemente acquaioli o acquatici negli stadi preimmaginali.

Diptera From ancient Greek δίς, ds, twice, and πτερόν, ptern, wing. The Diptera comprise a large order, containing an estimated 240,000 species of mosquitoes, gnats, midges and others, although under half of these (about 120,000 species) have been described.
