Fishermyia stuckenbergi, a new genus and species of Afrotropical robber fly from Madagascar (Diptera: Asilidae: Stenopogoninae)

J. G.H. Londt

Abstract


A new robber fly genus, Fishermyia, is described to accommodate F.stuckenbergi sp. n., collected in the Andohahela National Park in southern Madagascar. A revised key to the genera of Afrotropical Stenopogoninae possessing setose anatergites is provided. A brief résumé of Madagascan Asilidae is presented, together with comments on the genera of Oriental Stenopogoninae, which support the contention that this new discovery is of considerable interest.
