oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Records and descriptions of Blepharoceridae, Erinnidae and Rhagionidae from South Africa (Diptera)

Volume 15, Issue 11
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



This paper comprises records and descriptionptions of new and little-known South African species of the families Blepharoceridae, Erinnidae and Rhagionidae, and is based largely on material obtained during collecting trips in the past few years. Three new species of Atherimorpha in the collection of the British Museum (N.H.) are recorded because of their importance to an understanding of the taxonomy and distribution of this relic genus in South Africa, even though it has not been possible to name them because of the inadequacy of the material. Holotypes and allotypes are in the collection of the Natal Museum.
