oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Afrotropical Tabanidae (Diptera): the genus Philoliche Wiedemann, subgenus Ommatiosteres Enderlein

Volume 25, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



The subgenus Ommatiosteres Enderlein of Philoliche Wiedemann is revised and the following six new species are descriptionbed and figured: flava, flavitibialis, londti, omanensis, peringueyi, stuckenbergi. P. (O.) discors Austen and P. (O.) littoralis Oldroyd are raised to full specific status, having been pre­viously placed as subspecies of P. (O.) beckeri Bezzi. P. (Maverica) ingrata Oldroyd is now placed in subgenus Ommatiosteres and the male is descriptionbed. P. nigricornis Bigot is removed from synonymy under P. (O.) lateralis Fabricius and becomes a senior synonym of P. (Buplex) brincki Oldroyd. The female of P. (O.) comata Austen is recognised for the first time as is the male of P. (O.) marriotti Usher. P. (O.) hispanica Krober is recognised as a species distinct from P. (O.) lateralis Fabricius and the male is descriptionbed.
