Predation on the immature stages of the dung-breeding buffalo fly Haematobia thirouxi potans (Bezzi) by members of species from the families Staphylinidae, Histeridae and Hydrophilidae (Coleoptera) from the southern African dung fauna was examined in the laboratory. Field-collected adult beetles were tested individually in small chambers containing dung that had been infested with fly eggs.
