Euryplatea Nanaknihali Fly – Meet the Smallest Species of Flies

Flies are insects that most the people know because these are common insects like ants. The most familiar species of flies may be the common household flies and fruit flies. The flies have a large number of species that inhabit different regions of our Earth. Among the 120,000 species of flies, the smallest species is Euryplatea Nanaknihali.

The size of an average euryplatea nanaknihali fly is about 0.4 millimeters. At such a smaller size, the changes in air currents and air viscosity make it difficult to move for them. The strange fact about these flies is their reproductive strategy. They usually lay their eggs in the bodies and heads of ants until they hatch.
