  • ISSN : 0304-0798



The following report concerns a collection received from Mr. B.R. Stuckenberg, of the Natal Museum, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. I appreciate having had the opportunity of studying this material which adds considerably to our knowledge of the South African Pipunculidae. The collection contained twenty-seven species (plus eight apparently undescriptionbed species represented by uniques). These belong to five genera and two subgenera. Three species of Pipunculus (Pipunculus) are being descriptionbed as new. The drawings have been prepared by Miss Paula Dee Ingold, University of Hawaii.
