oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Studies in African Bombyliidae. X. Taxonomic problems relevant to a catalogue of Ethiopian Bombyliidae, with descriptions of new genera and species
This paper attempts to clarify several matters which have arisen in the course of preparing a catalogue of Ethiopian Bombyliidae. A large number of type specimens have been examined and many hitherto uncertain taxa have been placed, often involving synonymy which will be given in the catalogue. However, some of these synonymies require clarification beyond that appropriate to or possible in a catalogue, and in some instances require creation of new taxa for satisfactory resolution. In addition, some nomenclatural matters are the cause of some new taxa, including a new genus and the opportunity is taken to comment on a major re-allocation of species from the genus Exoprosopa Macquart.
