Surimyia reemeri sp. n. and Carreramyia jatai sp. n. are described from the Brazilian Amazon. The diagnosis of Surimyia Reemer is emended to include S. reemeri sp. n. that differs from other species of the genus mainly by the shape of male terminalia and basoflagellomere length. In addition, S. rolanderi Reemer is recorded for Brazil for the first time. The key to species of Carreramyia Doesburg by Reemer (2008) is modified to include C. jatai sp. n., and a key to species of Surimyia is… Expand

Taxonomic exploration of Neotropical Microdontinae (Diptera: Syrphidae) mimicking stingless bees.
Several species of Neotropical Microdontinae (Diptera: Syrphidae) are mimics of stingless bees and are treated as different genera, with some considerations on mimicry as a possible drive for speciation. Expand
Surimyia, a new genus of Microdontinae, with notes on Paragodon Thompson, 1969 (Diptera, Syrphidae)
Surimyia is the only known genus of Syrphidae in which the katatergum (ventral part of lateral postnotal sclerite of mesonotum) lacks microtrichia, and is unique in the absence of pilosity on the postpronotum. Expand
Generic revision and species classification of the Microdontinae (Diptera, Syrphidae)
A new generic classification of the Microdontinae is introduced, relying partly on the results of phylogenetic analyses of morphological and molecular data as published in other papers, and partly on examination of primary type specimens of 347 taxa, plus additional material, and original descriptions.

Phylogenetic relationships of Microdontinae (Diptera: Syrphidae) based on molecular and morphological characters
P phylogenetic analyses of molecular and morphological characters (both separate and combined) of Microdontinae are presented and Spheginobaccha is recovered as highly supported sister group in both. Expand
