Diptera
Order of insects with one pair of wings, the second pair being modified into balancing organs, the halteres; the mouthparts are modified for sucking or piercing. The insects show complete metamorphosis in that they have larval, pupal and imaginal (imago, adult) stages. The order includes the flies and mosquitoes; best known genera are Anopheles and Drosophila.
