oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Arcuator, a new genus of Chloropidae (Diptera), with a key to the Afrotropical and Palaearctic species

Volume 27, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



The new genus Arcuator (type species, Hippelates stigmaticus Lamb) is proposed for eight known species from the Palaearctic, Afrotropical, and Oriental Regions and eight new Afrotropical species: A. dewittei (Zaïre), aburensis (Ghana), melanicus (Kenya; Ethiopia), latimaculosus (Zaïre), deemingi (Nigeria), lindneri (Nigeria; central Africa), nigerensis (Niger; west Africa), and munroi (South Africa; southern Africa). Two new but inadequately known species are noted and keyed, but left unnamed. Hippelates jacobsi Tonnoir (Luxemburg) is tentatively synonymised under A. stigmaticus.
