Homeodactyla and Asilomorpha: Bombyliidae, Vol. 5, Part 13, in 'Flies of the Nearctic Region', edited by G. C. D. Griffiths
By Jack C. Hall & Neal L. Evenhuis
E. Schweizerbartsche Verlagsbuchhandlung, Stuttgart, 1980
This ambitious and extremely detailed monograph was published in seven "Numbers" over 24 years. The bulk of the work, Numbers 1-6 (consisting of pp. 1—656), were published between 1980 and 1987, with the final Number 7 (pp. 657—716) appearing in 2004. On pg. 708 of that last part, the authors expressed their apologies for not being able to complete the intended treatment due to unforeseen circumstances, and the hope that other authors might continue work on the portion of the family not completed.

Altogether, the work covers the following subfamilies of Bombyliidae in the order listed below:
