oa Annals of the Natal Museum - Two new South African species of Afrocamilla Barraclough (Diptera: Schizophora: Camillidae)

Volume 39, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0304-0798



Two new species of Afrocamilla are descriptionbed from South Africa: danielssoni from KwaZulu-Natal and malgasensis from the Western Cape. It is possible that danielssoni is saprophagous on the fallen fruit of Barringtonia trees. A. carolae is newly recorded from Stormsriver Pass in the Eastern Cape. A. danielssoni probably represents a previously unrecognised species group in the southern African fauna, and differs from all named South African species in having only a single vibrissa.
