  author={Lorenzo Munari},
Four new species of the beach fly family Canacidae are described, and some new records of both canacid and australimyzid flies from the field collections carried out by Danish Scientific Expeditions and by the entomologist N.L.H. Krauss are given. Nocticanace kraussi sp. nov., Masoniella darwini sp. nov., Pelomyia fuegina sp. nov. and Dasyrhicnoessa celata sp. nov. are described from the Cook Islands (Polynesia), southern Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, and the Bismarck Islands, respectively. Two…

New Indo-Pacific species of Dasyrhicnoessa Hendel, 1934 and Pseudorhicnoessa Malloch, 1914 (Diptera: Canacidae: Tethininae).
Three new species of Dasyrhicnoessa Hendel, 1934 and one of Pseudorhicnoessa Malloch, 1914 from the Indo-Pacific area are described and the male terminalia illustrated. Among these new species,
Is the diversity of the Beach Flies adequately known? Some reflections on the state of the art of current knowledge (Diptera: Canacidae)
An overview of the major zoogeographical gaps in our knowledge of the world beach flies (subfamilies Apetaeninae, Horaismopterinae, Pelomyiinae, and Tethininae) is provided. The identified areas
World Catalog of the Family Canacidae (including Tethinidae) (Diptera), with keys to the supraspecific taxa
All genera and species of the family Canacidae as well as all synonyms and the world distribution for each species are listed to form an updated world catalog. Since McAlpine’s (2007) placement of
Taxonomic and distributional notes on two species groups of the genus Dasyrhicnoessa Hendel (Diptera: Canacidae: Tethininae).
Some taxonomic and distributional aspects of two species groups of the genus Dasyrhicnoessa Hendel, 1934, viz. D. tripunctata group and D. ciliata group, are discussed. Figures of the male terminalia
Catalogue of the Diptera (Insecta) of Morocco— an annotated checklist, with distributions and a bibliography
Abstract The faunistic knowledge of the Diptera of Morocco recorded from 1787 to 2021 is summarized and updated in this first catalogue of Moroccan Diptera species. A total of 3057 species,


Beach flies (Diptera: Tethinidae: Tethininae) from Australia and Papua New Guinea, with descriptions of two new genera and ten new species
Two new genera and ten new species are described and a new species group, the Dasyrhicnoessa ciliata-group, is proposed, which differs from congeners primarily in its long-haired arista, slender body and legs, and peculiarities in the male terminalia.
The surge flies (Diptera: Canacidae: Zaleinae) of Australasia and notes on tethinid-canacid morphology and relationships
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.
A revision of the genera Pelomyia Williston and Masoniella Vockeroth (Diptera: Tethinidae)
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.

Antennal evolution in the Brachycera (Diptera), with a reassessment of terminology relating to the flagellum
It is suggested that the emergence of the Brachycera from nematocerous ancestors invo lved coevolution of antenna l transformation and pseudotracheate labell a, linked to a new feeding mode appropriate in new flo ras that appeared in the Triass ic and Jurassic .

A new family and genus of acalypterate flies from the Neotropical region, with a phylogenetic analysis of Carnoidea family relationships (Diptera, Schizophora)
The previously doubtful monophyly of the Carnoidea is accepted tentatively on the basis of newly established synapomorphies of the male genitalia, and revised hypotheses of the relationships of Cryptochetidae and Acartophthalmidae are revised.
