A revision of Laphystotes Oldroyd, with the description of a new species, and a key to the genera of Afrotropical Laphriinae (Diptera: Asilidae)


, : A revision of Laphystotes Oldroyd, with the description of a new species, and a key to the genera of Afrotropical Laphriinae (Diptera: Asilidae). African Entomology 12(1): 19-28

The Afrotropical asilid genus Laphystotes Oldroyd, 1974, is reviewed. Formerly based on two Zimbabwean specimens, L. albicans (Engel, 1932) is redescribed using material from the Molopo Game Reserve (North West Province of South Africa) and Ondangua (Namibia). L. ariel sp. n. is described from samples collected in the central parts of southern Africa. The species are keyed and illustrated. A revised key to the genera of Afrotropical Laphriinae is provided.
