oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - The genus Lonchoptera Meigen in Southern Africa (Diptera: Lonchopteridae)
The small but extremely interesting family Lonchopteridae is composed of one genus, Lonchoptera Meigen, and about 20 species, for the entire world. There are three species of this genus recorded or descriptionbed from the Ethiopian Region. Two of these are known on material from Southern Rhodesia; an endemic species, L. africana Adams, 1905, was descriptionbed on a female collected by F. L. Snow near Salisbury in 1901. and a male of a very widely distributed species, L. furcata (Fallen), was recorded from Umtali by Malloch (1932). Another endemic species, L. acinaris (Sï¿½guy), was descriptionbed in 1938 on material from Kenya.
