oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Studies in African Bombyliidae. IX. On Hyperusia Bezzi and the tribe Corsomyzini
The taxonomic position of the Geroninae is discussed and it is concluded that the subfamily is closely allied to the Systropodinae and the Toxophorinae. These three taxa form a group which may warrant family status. The distribution of the Geroninae is discussed and it is concluded that the subfamily is an ancient Gondwanan taxon; the Bombyliidae of the Canary Islands are of African origin.
