oa Annals of the Natal Museum - New and little-known Clusiidae (Diptera) from South Africa and Mocambique

Volume 21, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



The family Clusiidae is recorded for the first time from Subsaharan Africa and the following new species are descriptionbed: Tetrameringia aethiopica sp. n. (Natal and Cape Province), Sobarocephala zuluensis sp. n., (Zululand) and Sobarocephala milangensis sp. n. (Moçambique). Heteromeringia plumicornis Lamb of the Seychelles is transferred to Sobarocephala Czerny, and H. nigrifrons Lamb, descriptionbed from the Seychelles, is recorded from Zululand. The genus Tetrameringia was formerly known only from New South Wales. Sobarocephala has up till now been a New World genus; inclusion of the three Ethiopian Region species is a matter of some uncertainty.
