Review of the Families Tanypezidae and Strongylophthalmyiidae, with a Revision of Neotanypeza Hendel (Diptera: Schizophora)

  title={Review of the Families Tanypezidae and Strongylophthalmyiidae, with a Revision of Neotanypeza Hendel (Diptera: Schizophora)},
  author={Owen Lonsdale},
The families Tanypezidae and Strongylophthalmyiidae are reviewed, including Neotanypeza Hendel and Tanypeza Fallen in the former and Nartshukia Shatalkin and Strongylophthalmyia Heller in the latter. Neotanypeza is revised, and Tanypezidae is analyzed phylogenetically. Scipopeza Enderlein, syn. nov., Polphopeza Enderlein(syn. Hennig (1936)), Tritanypeza Enderlein, syn. nov., and Tripolphopeza Enderlein, syn. nov., are treated as junior synonyms of Neotanypeza . The species Scipopeza dimorpha…

The internal female genitalia of Aulacigaster (Diptera: Aulacigastridae)—description and phylogenetic analysis
Information extracted from the internal female genitalia corroborates and adds resolution to the results of previous analyses that employed characters of the external morphology and the male terminalia and is used to reconstruct ancestral character states and to discuss intrafamilial character state changes at and above the species group level.
