New genus and three new species of sepsid flies diptera sepsidae from vietnam



New genus and three new species of sepsid flies diptera sepsidae from vietnam



Zoologicheskii Zhurnal 71(3): 147-150



The descriptions of a new genus and the three new species from Vietnam are given. The genus MUCHA gen. n. (type species = Mucha tzokotucha sp. n.) is close to the genus Dicranosepsis Duda, from which it differs by pinnate arista, strongly lengthened flagellomere I, cheeks 2 times higher and by presence of strong marginal setae of I + II abdominal syntergite. Dicranosepsis emiliae sp. n. differs clearly from all the species of the genus Dicranosepsis by presence of black spot near the apex of the wing above R/2+3 and by the morphology of the fore legs. Toxopoda asymmetrica sp. n. differs from all known species of the genus Toxopoda having simultaneously only one pair of dorsocentral setae and asymmetric syrstyli.
