A review of Afrotropical Tanytarsus van der Wulp (Diptera: Chironomidae)

A review of Afrotropical Tanytarsus van der Wulp (Diptera: Chironomidae)

Tijdschrift voor Entomologie 144(1): 5-40

Tanytarsus ankasaensis sp. n., T. aterrimus Freeman, T. congus Lehmann, T. elisabethae sp. n., T. flexistilus Freeman, T. formosanus Kieffer, T. harei sp. n., T. luctuosus Freeman, T. mcmillani Freeman, T. spadiceonotatus Freeman, T. trifidus Freeman and T. zariae Freeman are described, all as male imago. Pupae and larvae of T. elisabethae, T. flexistilus, T. spadiceonotatus and T. trifidus are described for the first time. Pupae of T. formosanus and T. luctuosus are also described and figured. Keys to males, pupae and larvae of recognized Afrotropical Tanytarsus species, and an annotated checklist of the Afrotropical Tanytarsus species, as well as a list of the Ghanaian species with distributional records are given. T. formosae Kieffer, 1923a, T. horni Goetghebuer, T. aculeus Chaudhuri et al., 1988 and T. fuscimarginalis Chaudhuri et al., 1984 are claimed to be new junior synonyms of T. formosanus. T. atroxitarsus Chaudhuri & Datta, 1992 is claimed to be a new junior synonym of T. mcmillani Freeman. Rheotanytarsus formosae Kieffer, 1921 recently transferred to Tanytarsus, is found to be a senior secondary homonym of T. formosae Kieffer, 1923a. Lectotypes and paralectotypes are designated for T. formosanus Kieffer and for T. formosae (Kieffer, 1921).
