Horse-fly is the most widely-used English common name for members of the family Tabanidae. Apart from the common name horse-flies, broad categories of biting, bloodsucking Tabanidae are variously known as breeze flies, clegs or clags, deer flies, gadflies, or zimbs. In some areas of Canada, they also are known as Bull Dog Flies. In Australia some species are known as March flies, a name that in other English-speaking countries refers to a very different Dipteran family, the non-bloodsucking Bibionidae.
