A revision of neosilba with a key to the world genera of lonchaeidae diptera



A revision of neosilba with a key to the world genera of lonchaeidae diptera



Canadian Entomologist 114(2): 105-138



The identities of the 12 previously described species of Neosilba McAlpine, 7 of which are represented among the syntypes of N. pendula (Bezzi), are established: N. batesi (Curran), N. certa (Walker), N. dimidiata (Curran), N. fuscipennis (Curran), N. glabberrima (Wiedemann), N. longicerata (Hennig), N. major (Malloch) [= N. magna (Hennig), syn. nov.], N. parva (Hennig), N. pendula (Bezzi), N. perezi (Romero S. and Ruppel) and N. pseudopendula (Korytkowski and Ojeda). Three new species, also represented among the syntypes of N. pendula, are described: N. oaxacana and N. peltae from Mexico, and N. zadolicha from Colombia and Brazil. Lectotypes are designated for N. magna, N. parva, N. pendula and N. perezi. Carpolonchaea devians Hennig is placed in Silba Macquart, and C. intermedia Hennig is transferred to Lonchaea Fallen. New keys to the world genera of Lonchaeidae and to all described species of Neosilba are provided. Illustrations, mostly of male and female terminalia, are given.
