Abstract

A descriptionption is given of Lampromyia umbraticola sp. n., discovered in the Hajar Mountains of northern Oman. This distinctive species is phylogenetically isolated and constitutes a monospecific species-group. The wide but fragmented range of Lampromyia Macquart, 1835, suggests that this genus is a relict of an old African fauna, and that it was distributed across the Saharan and Arabian areas before their aridification.
