Title: The Nearctic species of Telmaturgus (Diptera: Dolichopodidae)

Author: Runyon, Justin B.;

Date: 2012

Source: Canadian Entomologist. 144: 337-347.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The sympycnine genus Telmaturgus Mik is reviewed for the Nearctic region, and includes three species: Telmaturgus parvus (Van Duzee), Telmaturgus robinsoni sp. nov., and Telmaturgus vockerothi sp. nov. Species of Telmaturgus can be recognized by the reduced number of dorsocentral setae (three pairs in Nearctic species) and the projecting lower face of females. Examination of the holotype of T. parvus reveals that the widespread species previously thought to be T. parvus is T. robinsoni. A key to species and comments on the taxonomic history and ecology of the genus are provided.

Keywords: Telmaturgus, taxonomic history, ecology
