How to use "Xenicidae" in context?
The xenicidae are a family of flyparasites in the order Diptera. They are usually tiny, with a length of only 0.8-1.2 mm, and a wingspan of only 0.5 mm.
They attach to the bodies of other insects, sucking fluids from their host's body. They are found around the world, and are particularly common in the tropics and subtropics.
There are about 120 species in the family, distributed across 19 genera. Most are small, but some, such as the common xenicfly, are quite large.
