Systematics of the genus group taxa of the Siphonini (Diptera: Tachinidae)

Quaestiones Entomologicae, 251-2: 1-229

Systematics of the genus group taxa of the Siphonini (Diptera: Tachinidae)

The genera and subgenera of the Siphonini are revised for the world fauna, based on a study of adults of most described and more than 100 undescribed species, and 1st-instar larvae of 68 species. Seven genera are recognized and each is hypothesized as monophyletic, these include: Goniocera, Entomophaga, Ceromya, Actia, Peribaea and Siphona. Ceromya is informally divided into Ceromya sensu stricto and the Ceromya silacea species group.
