oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - New species and records of South African Canaceidae (Diptera)

Volume 19, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The purpose of this paper is to report on new species and records of South African intertidal flies of the family Canaceidae collected and sent to me during the last few years by Mr. B. R. Stuckenberg of the Natal Museum. When I reviewed this family in 1951 (Occas. Papers B. P. Bishop Museum 20 : 245-275) the only known South African species were Canace cala Cresson and Nocticanace caffraria (Cresson), each known from only a single specimen collected at East London, Cape Province.
