Abstract

Herein are reported literature records of Asilidae preying upon Buprestidae, 40 where both predator and prey were identified at least to genus, plus 12 where the prey was identified only to family. Thirty-four new predator-prey records are given. All are included in a table that includes at least 25 genera and at least 60 species of Buprestidae as prey of at least 27 genera and at least 53 species of Asilidae.
