oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Marginidae, a new Afrotropical family of Diptera (Schizophora: ? Opomyzoidea)

Volume 32, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



The new family Marginidae is established for Margo gen. n., including two new species, namely M. aperta (Zimbabwe) and M. clausa (Madagascar). The family is provisionally admitted to the super­family Opomyzoidea, though it also resembles certain Nerioidea. Research on distribution of Marginidae is needed to determine if the populations are at risk from habitat destruction.
