The horn fly, Siphonairritans (L.), has been the subject of a considerable amount of study. In general, it seems to be true that the groups of insects that have received the most attention belong to one of three classes: those that are of economic importance, those that are especially adapted to laboratory manipulation, and those that are particularly attractive to collectors. Despite intensive and extensive studies, the economically important horn fly does not land itself very wall to research in the laboratory at the present time.
