Habitus photo, label data, type locality and condition of the primary type specimen are provided for 30 species. Lectotype designations are made for the following 20 species (original combinations): Rhamphomyia antennata Frey, 1915; R. (Ctenempis) chrysodactyla Frey, 1950; R. (C.) gripha Frey, 1935; R. (C.) ussuriensis Frey, 1950; R. (Dasyrhamphomyia) ornithorhampha Frey, 1950; R. (D.) pleciaeformis Frey, 1950; R. (D.) taimyrensis Frey, 1950; R. (Eorhamphomyia) basispinosa Frey, 1950; R. (E.) multisinuosa Frey, 1950; R. (E.) principalis Frey, 1950; R. (E.) setitibia Frey, 1950; R. (Megacyttarus) cymbella Frey, 1950; R. (Pararhamphomyia) barbipalpis Frey, 1950; R. (P.) mendicula Frey, 1950; R. (P.) semipellucida Frey, 1950; R. (P.) stackelbergi Frey, 1950; R. (P.) transversipyga Frey, 1950; R. (Rhamphomyia) filipjefi Frey, 1950; R.
