oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Subsaharan Ceratopogonidae (Diptera) V. Kolenohelea, a new genus of African Stilobezziini

Volume 24, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



The new genus, Kolenohelea, is descriptionbed, with type species K. dycei sp. n. from South Africa, Zimbabwe and Cameroon. Also included are milleri sp. n., mirabunda sp. n., and mirifica sp. n., all from Natal, South Africa. A key is given for their separation. The genus belongs in the tribe Stilobezziini, where it resembles species of Serromyia and Monohelea with its swollen hind femora and wing venation, but in the female the tarsal claws are unequal on all legs like those of Stilobezzia. Ceratopogon natalensis de Meillon from Natal is transferred to Isohelea.
