Notes on the Distribution of 31 Species of Sarcophagidae (Diptera) in Australia Including New Records in Australia for Eight Species
Abstract:The Australian Sarcophagidae (Diptera) are a neglected fauna, with no extensive work undertaken on this group since Lopes in the 1950s. Using locality information obtained from broad Australian taxon sampling and pinned museum specimens, we present new distributional information for 31 species known from Australia. In addition, we document the first Australian records of eight species: Amobia pelopei (Rondani, 1859), Metopia sauteri (Townsend, 1933), Oxysarcodexia varia (Walker, 1836), Sarcophaga (Harpagophalla) kempi Senior-White, 1924, Sarcophaga (Lioproctia) multicolor Johnston & Tiegs, 1922, Sarcophaga (Sarcosolomonia) crinita Parker, 1917, Sarcophaga (Sarcosolomonia) sumunensis (Lopes, 1967) and Sarcophaga simplex (Lopes, 1967; not assigned to a subgenus, Pape, 1996).
