Flies are a type of insect from the order Diptera (derived from the Greek words di meaning two and ptera meaning wing). The most obvious difference between flies and other insect orders is that flies have a pair of flying wings and a pair of dumbbells, which originate from the hind wings, on the metathorax (except for some fly species which are flightless). The only other insect order that has two fully functional wings and has dumbbells is the Strepsiptera. However, unlike flies, Strepsitera's dumbbells are in the mesothorax and wings in the metathorax.
