oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Subsaharan Ceratopogonidae (Diptera) XI. The genus Serromyia Meigen

Volume 25, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



A key and illustrations are presented for the identification of the nine Subsaharan species of the pre­daceous midge genus Serromyia Meigen, including the following which are descriptionbed as new: agathae (Transvaal), meiswinkeli, neethlingi, and stuckenbergi (Natal). and rossi (Madagascar). Diagnoses and new records are presented for previously descriptionbed species, while the hitherto unknown female of S. zuluensis is descriptionbed. Ceratopogon armipes de Meillon is a new junior synonym of Serromyia nocti­color Kieffer. Reasons are given for excluding Serromyia fuligipennis Clastrier from the genus Serro­myia, but its position is left uncertain pending discovery of the male sex.
