oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Revised tribal classification of various genera of Trypetinae and Ceratitinae, and the description of a new species of Taomyia Bezzi (Diptera: Tephritidae)
Taomyia mauritiana sp. nov. is descriptionbed from Mauritius. A key to the species of Taomyia Bezzi is provided, together with an improved key to the Afrotropical genera of Trypetini. The taxonomic relationships of several genera and species of Trypetinae and Ceratitinae are discussed and new host records presented. Ceratitis pycnanthi (GhesquiÃ¨re) is transferred from subgenus Pardalaspis Bezzi to subgenus Ceratalaspis Hancock, whilst Myoleja fossataeformis (Bezzi), comb. nov. and Myoleja inconspicua (Hancock), comb. nov. are transferred from Euleia Walker. Cycasia Malloch is placed as a new synonym of Ornithoschema de Meijere.
