Taxonomic and distributional notes on the little known Australasian species of Ptecticus Loew (Diptera, Stratiomyidae)



Taxonomic and distributional notes on the little known Australasian species of Ptecticus Loew (Diptera, Stratiomyidae)



Tijdschrift voor Entomologie 146(2): 241-258



Types and other material of the Australasian species of Ptecticus are reviewed. One new species, Ptecticus danielsi sp. n., is described from both parts of New Guinea. Revision of the relevant type specimens resulted in the proposal of six new synonyms: Ptecticus complens (Walker, 1858) (=Sargus tarsalis Walker, 1861, S. rufescens Van der Wulp, 1869 and P. amplior Daniels, 1979), P. longipes (Walker, 1861) (=P. longipennis salomonensis Lindner, 1937, P. tritus Daniels, 1979) and P. rogans (Walker, 1858) (=P. queenslandicus Daniels, 1979). Lectotypes are designated for P. longipennis salomonensis Lindner, 1937, Sargus rogans Walker, 1858 and S. rufescens Van der Wulp, 1869. The identities of P. archboldi Lindner, 1957, P. connectens Brunetti, 1923, P. ferrugineus (Doleschall, 1859) and P. rufus (Doleschall, 1859) are discussed. Additional taxonomic notes and new distributional records are given for seven Australasian species. A new identification key for all the known Australasian species of Ptecticus is presented.
