oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Afrotropical Asilidae (Diptera) 29. A review of the genus Saropogon Loew, 1847 (Dasypogoninae)

Volume 38, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



The afrotropical species of Saropogon Loew are reviewed, with eight species recorded. Four of the five previously known species are redescriptionbed (material of the fifth being unavailable for study). Three species are descriptionbed as new: S. greatheadi (from Eritrea), S. kenyensis (from Kenya) and S. zinidi (from Kenya and Tanzania). A key to the species is provided. The need for a complete review of the palaearctic fauna is expressed, as this could resolve a number of taxonomic problems still relating to the afrotropical taxa.
