Neomuscina Townsend includes 41 species distributed throughout the Nearctic and Neotropical Regions. Although the genus has a large number of species, it has been ignored and its taxonomy is confusing and has many flaws. In this work we analyzed the following species recorded for Brazil: Neomuscina atincta Snyder, N. atincticosta Snyder, N. capalta Snyder, N. currani Snyder, N. douradensis Lopes & Khouri, N. goianensis Lopes & Khouri, N. inflexa (Stein), N. instabilis Snyder, N. mediana Snyder… Expand
New distribution records for Muscidae (Insecta: Diptera) in Latin America
TLDR
The geographical distribution of Muscidae from Latin America has been extended and new records and additional collecting data have been provided for Brazil, Colombia, and Costa Rica, including reference maps for the species listed. Expand
New systematic position of Itatingamyia Albuquerque (Diptera, Muscidae) based on molecular evidence, and description of the female of I. couriae
TLDR
This work estimates the position of Itatingamyia within Muscidae with mitochondrial (COI) and nuclear (AATS, CAD, and EF1-α) markers using Maximum likelihood and Bayesian posterior probabilities as optimality criteria, and proposes to classify Itatesamyia as a Cyrtoneurininae. Expand

Houseflies speaking for the conservation of natural areas: a broad sampling of Muscidae (Diptera) on coastal plains of the Pampa biome, Southern Brazil
TLDR
A regional and broad-scale sampling survey to investigate the diversity of Muscidae flies in protected and non-protected areas of CPPB and identifies a high diversity of carnivorous species associated with forested and more preserved areas and a high level of a few saprophagous species as indicator of anthropisation process.

Itatingamyia Albuquerque, 1979 is rare in collections, with only nine specimens preserved in museums. Two species are known, and their placement within Muscidae was never tested using molecular data.Expand
Say goodbye to tribes in the new house fly classification: A new molecular phylogenetic analysis and an updated biogeographical narrative for the Muscidae (Diptera).
TLDR
It is concluded that the muscid radiation began in the Paleocene to Eocene and is congruent with the final stages of the breakup of Gondwana, which resulted in the complete separation of Antarctica, Australia, and South America. Expand
