On Chloropidae (Diptera: Muscomorpha) from Tunisia

On Chloropidae (Diptera: Muscomorpha) from Tunisia

Russian Entomological Journal 13(1-2): 85-89

A collection of Chloropidae made by R. Danielsson in Tunisia in April of 1994 contains 25 species, from them 3 species are referred only to genus because of insufficient material. In the collection examined, 6 species and 3 genera are recorded for the first time for North Africa, whereas 14 species are new for the fauna of Tunisia. In total, 39 species of Chloropidae are known now in Tunisia. The most abundant species in the examined collection are Thaunatomyia notata (Meigen, 1836), Oscinella frit (Linnaeus, 1758) and Tricimba humeralis (Loew, 1858). Colour variation in spring population of Thaumatomyia notata is discussed, and drawing of male genitalia of Tricimba humeralis is given.
