Abstract.  The acalypterate family Inbiomyiidae fam.n. (Diptera, Carnoidea) is described for the newly discovered Neotropical genus Inbiomyiagen.n. with its type species I. mcalpineorumsp.n. from Costa Rica. The genus ranges from Guatemala south to French Guiana and Bolivia and includes a total of fourteen undescribed species, ten of which will be described formally in a separate paper. Inbiomyia is distinctive, with characteristic, extremely shortened head with nonfunctional ptilinum and… 
Clusiomitidae, A New Family of Eocene Fossil Acalyptratae, with Revision of Acartophthalmites Hennig and Clusiomites Gen. Nov. (Diptera)
TLDR
A new family, Clusiomitidae, is established for the Eocene Baltic amber fossil flies of the genus Acartophthalmites Hennig, 1965 because they cannot be confidently placed in any known family of Diptera, probably most closely allied to Clusiidae.
Natalimyzidae, a new African family of acalyptrate flies (Diptera: Schizophora: Sciomyzoidea)
TLDR
The Natalimyzidae is the first widespread new family of Diptera described entirely from new African taxa, and is provisionally treated as incertae sedis within the superfamily Sciomyzoidea.
Male terminalia of Diptera (Insecta): a review of evolutionary trends, homology and phylogenetic implications
TLDR
The Diptera sperm pump with a functional ejaculatory apodeme is a possible autapomorphy of Diptera, exclusive of Nymphomyiidae and Deuterophlebiidae.
First Species of Inbiomyia from the Atlantic Forest of Brazil (Diptera: Inbiomyiidae)
TLDR
The first species of Inbiomyiidae known from the Atlantic Forest in southeastern Brazil is described and SEM photos show that the bifurcated labella have on their ventral face rows of scalelike rasping teeth that may be used to graze on green algae, as the gut content of some specimens suggest.
The fauna of the opomyzoid families Clusiidae, Acartophthalmidae, Anthomyzidae, Opomyzidae, Stenomicridae, Periscelididae, Asteiidae (Diptera) in the Gemer area (Central Slovakia)
TLDR
The fauna of seven families of Opomyzoidea (Diptera) in the Gemer area (Slovakia) is given and Podocera soniae (Stenomicridae) is the most interesting species because it was originally partly described from specimens (paratypes) discovered in the area.
Enigmocarnus chloropiformis gen. et sp. nov., and Parallel Evolution of Protandrial Symmetry in Carnidae (Diptera)
TLDR
The new genus Enigmocarnus chloropiformis is characterized by a reduced head chaetotaxy, notable gray pruinosity of the body, and a unique configuration of pregenital sclerites (the protandrium), which precludes placement of this species in any previously described genus of Carnidae.
Phylogenetic relationships and classification of the Chloropinae of the world (Diptera: Chloropidae)
TLDR
This is the first phylogenetic study of the Chloropinae using a formal analytical approach, including representatives of 73 genera of the subfamily and 124 morphological characters, and finds compelling evidence that Chlorops and Ectecephalina are paraphyletic.
New amber fossil Anthomyzidae (Diptera): an unexpected Eocene diversity
TLDR
Habitat and host–plant association and diversity of Anthomyzidae in the Eocene Baltic amber forest are discussed and it is concluded that they probably had a biology similar to extant species but obviously a higher species diversity than known in the contemporary European fauna.
Revision of the neotropical family Inbiomyiidae (Diptera, Schizophora)
The Central and South American family Inbiomyiidae with its single genus Inbiomyia Buck is revised, including descriptions of 10 new species: I. acmophallus Buck sp. nov. (Colombia), I. anemosyris

Ocoidae, a new family of asiloid flies (Diptera: Brachycera: Asiloidea), based on Ocoa chilensis gen. and sp.n. from Chile, South America
TLDR
Molecular evidence from 28S rDNA provides further support for the monophyly of the therevoid group of families, and suggests that Ocoidae belongs within this clade, in agreement with the morphological data.
Discovered in our backyard: a new genus and species of a new family from the Rocky Mountains of North America (Diptera, Tabanomorpha)
TLDR
A new genus of the Tabanomorpha,Oreoleptis, assigned to the monotypic family Oreoleptidae, fam.n.
The surge flies (Diptera: Canacidae: Zaleinae) of Australasia and notes on tethinid-canacid morphology and relationships
TLDR
The morphology, relationships, and classification of the Tethinidae and Canacidae are considered, with special reference to the Zaleinae, and two doubtful species represented by inadequate material are assigned provisional numbers.
The Australian genera of Heleomyzidae (Diptera: Schizophora) and a reclassification of the family into tribes
The 16 Australian genera of Heleomyzidae are characterised, five genera, together with their type-species, being described as new. A key to the Australasian genera is given. The classification of the
Review of the Australian kelp flies Diptera: Coelopidae
TLDR
The Coelopidae appear to be most closely related to the families Helcomyzidae and Dryomyzidae of the superfamily Sciomyzoidea, and to the species of Chaetocoelopa, Coe‐lopella, Gluma and Icaridion.
World Catalog of the Family Tethinidae (Diptera)
TLDR
The taxonomic and nomenclatural changes are as follows: the subfamily Apetaeninae Mathis and Munari is proposed, three new combinations are included and Tethina minutissima is transferred to the family Chyromyidae.

The Central and South American family Inbiomyiidae with its single genus Inbiomyia Buck is revised, including descriptions of 10 new species: I. acmophallus Buck sp. nov. (Colombia), I. anemosyris
Homology and phylogenetic implications of male genitalia in Diptera - Eremoneura
TLDR
The above characters support the monophyly of the Eremoneura and also indicate that the Empidoidea and Cyclorrhapha are sister groups, as opposed to alternative hypotheses that suggest the EmPidoideA is paraphyletic with respect to the Cyclor rhapha.
A study of Zaleinae, a taxon transitional between Canacidae and Tethinidae (Diptera), with the description of a new genus and species
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the Zaleinae are discussed, and the subfamily is shown to be an intermediate group between typical Canacidae and Tethinidae, indicating that only one family is involved.
A revision of the genera Pelomyia Williston and Masoniella Vockeroth (Diptera: Tethinidae)
TLDR
The cladistic analysis of genera within Pelomyiinae was based upon 19 morphological characters and resulted in a single most-parsimonious cladogram of 11 steps with consistency and retention indices of 1.0 and 1.1, respectively.
