oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - South African Horseflies of the tribe Pangoniini (Diptera : Tabanidae)

The classification of Mackerras (1954: 435) divides the subfamily Pangoniinae into three tribes: Pangoniini, Scioniini and Philolichini. In a survey of the Tabanidae of the Ethiopian Region (Oldroyd, 1957: 34.) I concluded that all the known Pangoniinae of this Region belonged to the tribe Philolichini, with the exception of two specimens of uncertain generic position. One of these, a female horsefly with hairy eyes, had been taken in the Cape Province, and was discussed and figured, but not given a name (loc. cit.: 453).
