Plural: palpi. One- to five-segmented, auxillary mouthparts lateral of the functional mouthparts.
paramedian

parasitoid
An organism that spends a significant portion of its life history attached to or within a single host organism which it ultimately kills (and often consumes) in the process. Thus they are similar to typical parasites except in the fate of the host. In a typical parasitic relationship, the parasite and host live side by side without lethal damage to the host.

phoresy

pollination
The process where flowering plants are fertilised by the transfer of male pollen to the female stigma by animals, air or water currents. Diptera are very significant pollinators, often more so than Hymenoptera, but they are often named, only to family, incorrectly, or not at all.

pollinosity
Powdery, scaley surface covering that may cover enitire surfaces or form patterns like stripes or bands across most parts of the body. The extent of covering or shape of patterns can be an important disgnostic feature.
polyphageous
polyphagous (synonym)
polyphagous
Feeding on a range of food sources, for example, Diptera with an unspecialised diet (omnivorous). Polyphagous may be used to describe an herbivorous insect that feeds on a broad range of plant species, a predator that feeds on many species of prey, a parasite that feeds on a broad range of host species, or a species that has larvae that feed on different kinds of organic matter, both animal and plant, for example.
