Line 17: Line 17:
The larvae of most Sepsidae largely develop in dung, excrement, rotting organic matter such as dead snails and insects, mushrooms and bracket fungi, in nests of birds, in soil rich in organic compounds, in compost, etc. The adults are generally observed near the larval habitats, usually in somewhat open habitats such as meadows, along watercourses, forest margins and clearings in woodland areas. Some species occur in major swarms on low vegetation and shrubs, waving their wings. These swarms can persist for over a month and are often accompanied by a certain odour. All this does not account for //Orygma luctuosum// which is a seaside species, to be found under cast up seaweed.
