Adult lauxaniid flies reach body lengths of up to 5 mm. Their bodies are stocky and often bright yellow to yellowy-orange in colour. Their sparse hair and long dark bristles are very striking. The head bears large compound eyes which are often red. Many species have patterned wings. Lauxaniid fly larvae live in rotting leaves and are also often found in birds' nests.
