I would like to thank Steve Marshall for advising me, this review could not have been completed without his support and guidance, and without access to the Guelph Insect Collection (DEBU) where the lab work for this study was conducted. I am grateful to all the collections which loaned me material for study and/or allowed me to identify material at their institutions (listed in full under Methods). I thank Steve Paiero, Morgan Jackson and Jessica Gillung for editing the text and key multiple times and for their continued mentorship in all things dipterology. I also thank Martin Hauser for his edits and for sharing his expertise of Stratiomyidae, which helped improve the manuscript immensely. Finally, I would like to thank Brad Sinclair and Joel Gibson for their helpful and thorough reviews.
