Adult males and females of the sugarbeet root maggot, Tetanops myopaeformis (von Röder), were classified into typical and small size groups based upon wing length (WL). WL measurements separating the 2 size groups were 4.28 mm and 4.36 mm for males and females, respectively. Seasonal distributions of small males and females trapped in flight were random from 30 May to 10 July 1980. No differences in the flight distributions of small males and females relative to typical males and females, respectively, between habitats were found, except small males occurred significantly less often in sugarbeets than typical males.
