Hydrophorinae Aphrosylinae Conchopus Takagi taxonomy.


A new species of Thambemyia Oldroyd, T. fusariae sp. nov., is described from the Brazilian State of Bahia. This is the first record of Thambemyia from the Neotropical Region, apart the Palearctic T. borealis (Takagi), introduced in USA and Peru. T. fusariae sp. nov. belongs to the subgenus Thambemyia, making the group an unusual case of Neotropical-Oriental disjunction.
