Nature of Aragon > Fauna

This order of insects groups flies and mosquitoes.

fly. insect. diptero.

They have a pair of developed membranous wings and another pair transformed into flight regulators or "rockers".

Tipula. diptero.

Your mouthpiece is sucker and sucker-chopper.

Your metamorphosis is complete.

Most of its numerous species are highly harmful, both in the larval state and in the adult state.
They can be parasites of plants or animals that suck the blood and many of them are disease transmitters.


Housefly is distributed worldwide and has a preference for human housing.

It is a spreader of all kinds of infectious-contagious diseases such as typhus, dysentery, cholera and tuberculosis.

Transmits polio and trachoma viruses and intestinal parasites.

They feed on everything they find and feel a special predilection for decomposing food materials, garbage and excrement. They are especially active in hot climates.

There are flies with an itchy buccal device that can pierce the skin of their victims and draw blood.
They usually attack cattle, but also man, transmitting diseases such as anthrax, pernicious anemia, filarias, and dangerous sleeping sickness, due to the tsé-tsé fly.

Others parasitize meat, fruits, and even living beings and corpses with their larvae.

The jaws and jaw make up the organ with which they pierce the skin and pump the blood. The labium is a sensitive organ that is responsible for selecting the right place for the bite.

The mosquitoes

They are the most important diptera from the sanitary point of view due to the quantity and importance of the diseases they transmit, both those of the Culex genus, or domestic mosquitoes that can transmit encephalitis, Aedes, which is fever yellow, "dengue" and filarias, as well as those of the genus Anopheles, transmitter of malaria. Most species are nocturnal habits especially during the twilight hours. Only females are bloodsuckers, who need to lay fertile eggs.

The biological cycle of mosquitoes begins with the laying of eggs, isolated or grouped in rafts, on the surface of the water.

The hatching of the larvae takes place within a few days.

These breathe through a tube the oxygen in the air.

Then the larvae are transformed into pupae that breathe from the surface through two tubes of the thoracic region.

Typical species of dipterans:

A small presentation of the diversity of the insects could be the following:

The SEA is realizing a complete Catalog of the Aragonese Entomofauna that has already been partially published, where 190 families have been inventoried with 3012 species.

   images about the fauna in Aragon.
   photographs on invertebrates.
   beneficial animals for agriculture.

Also Aragon enjoys a diverse and varied Nature where passing by plants, animals, Geology, or landscapes we can arrive at a fantastic bestiary that lives in its monuments.

The information will not be complete without a stroll by its three provinces, with shutdown in some of its spectacular landscapes like Ordesa, the Moncayo, Monegros or by opposition the Ebro.

Also you can dedicarte to the intangible ones: from the legend compilation that also does to universal Aragon.

The pasapues project is an extension of the Aragón project is like that, and tries to collect and relate all possible types of documentary information about Aragon: texts, books, articles, maps, illustrations, photographs, narrations, etc., and proceed to its publication and diffusion.
