RE: [beemonitoring] flies on the bee
Those flies are milichiids.
The world authority for that family is Dr Irina Brake of the Natural History Museum, London .

Subject: [beemonitoring] flies on the bee
I am PhD student at B. Z University Pakitan. Few days ago I came across a dead honey bee in a mustard crop with many small dipteran on it. I guess these flies may be some parasitoids.
Give some comments on it please.
