Note. The original type series consisted of the holotype, allotype and 13 paratypes from Belgrano, Capital Federal. This species was synonymized with Cochliomyia macellaria (Fabricius)  by Mariluis (1982).

maurii  [ Sarconesia  ]. Mariluis, 1981: 104 –105. Ecuador: Cotopaxi, Tigua.

PARATYPE  : one female, pinned, in good condition, “ Ecuador / Cotopaxi-Tigua / 4 / 76 3.800 m. / Mariluis col.” handwritten on white paper; “Par [handwritten] atypus [printed]” on white paper; “ Sarconesia maurii  / Mariluis, 1981 ” printed on white paper; “ Paratype  ” printed on red paper.

Note. The original type series consisted of the holotype and 17 paratypes (1 male and 16 females) from Tigua, Cotopaxi, Ecuador, and 6 female paratypes from Pijuli, Cotopaxi, Ecuador. Only one paratype  is housed in ANLIS, the remaining 22 paratypes and the holotype are housed in MACN. Currently treated as a valid species of Chlorobrachycoma Townsend ( Kosmann et al. 2013)  .

mera  [ Lucilia  ]. Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926: 586 ( Figs. 1–3View FIGURES 1 – 3). Argentina: Jujuy, San Pedro de Jujuy.

LECTOTYPE: male, pinned, damaged, without abdomen, legs and wings, “ San Pedro de / Jujuy [printed] 4.28. 26 [handwritten]” on white paper; “Shannon & / Shannon” printed on white paper; “ 477 ” handwritten on white paper, red frame; “Tipo / 7.IX. 46 / CDP” handwritten on white paper, red frame; “ Lucilia  / mera  / S.& Del P.” handwritten on white paper. One slide, wing, “ 3108 / 477 / L.mera  / Holotipo” handwritten; “ Lucilia mera  / Sh y D. P. / Holotipo” handwritten. One slide, genitalia, “ P. mera  / tipo ♂” handwritten on white paper; “ 3109 / 477 / Holotipo” handwritten; “ 3109 / ad. 477 / Holotipo / Lucilia mera  / Sh. y D. P. / S. Pedro de Jujuy / 28 -IV- 26 ” handwritten on white paper. PARALECTOTYPE: one male, pinned, in good condition, “ San Pedro de / Jujuy [printed] 4.28. 26 [handwritten]” on white paper; “Shannon & / Shannon” printed on white paper; “ Lucilia  / mera  / S & D.P.” handwritten on white paper; “mus, B.R.” handwritten on white paper, with red ink.

Note. The original type series consisted of three males and two females from San Pedro de Jujuy, Jujuy province and Concepción de Tucumán, Tucumán province. We found only the lectotype and one paralectotype in ANLIS. Mello (1961: 274) mentioned the existence of a male holotype when he commented: “... duas laminas con asa e genitália de Lucilia mera  , san Pedro de Jujuy, 28.IV. 26, Holotipo (macho) (n° 3109 e 3108) ...” and this is regarded as a lectotype fixation. This nominal species was synonymized with Lucilia ochricornis (Wiedemann)  by Whitworth (2014). The United States National Museum ( USNM) has two males and two females from San Pedro de Jujuy, Argentina, and one male from Concepción, Tucumán, Argentina ( Whitworth 2014: 36). Whitworth (2014) did not examine the type specimens housed in ANLIS and overlooked the lectotype fixation made by Mello (1961).

primaveris  [as “ prima veris ”] [ Lucilia  ]. Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926: 586. Argentina: Buenos Aires, San Isidro.

PARALECTOTYPES: one male, pinned, damaged, without abdomen and legs, “San Isidro (B.A.) [printed] / 9-16 - 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “R. C.

One female, pinned, in good condition, “San Isidro (B.A.) [printed] / 9-16 - 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “R. C. Shannon / coll.” printed on white paper; “ Lucilia  / primaveris  / S.& D P.” handwritten on white paper; “mus B. R.” handwritten on white paper, with red ink. One male, pinned, damaged, “San Isidro (B.A.) [printed] / 9-16 - 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; red circle; “R. C. Shannon / coll.” printed on white paper. One male, pinned, damaged, “San Isidro (B.A.) [printed] / 9-16 - 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “R. C. Shannon / coll.” printed on white paper; red circle; “ibis?” handwritten on white paper, with blue ink. One male, pinned, without head and abdomen, “San Isidro (B.A.) [printed] / 9-16 - 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “R. C. Shannon / coll.” printed on white paper; “E. Del Ponte Coll [printed] / ♂ 1 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; red circle. One male, pinned, damaged, without abdomen, “San Isidro (B.A.) [printed] / 9-16 - 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “R. C. Shannon / coll.” printed on white paper; red circle; “ 664 ” handwritten on white paper. One slide, genitalia, “ 3037 / ad 464 ” handwritten; “ 3037 / 664 4 / San Isidro / L. primaveris  / genitalia ♂” handwritten on white paper. One male pinned, damaged, without legs and left wing, “San Isidro (B.A.) [printed] / 9-16 - 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “R. C. Shannon / coll.” printed on white paper; “ 626 ” handwritten on white paper; red circle. One male pinned, damaged, “San Isidro (B.A.) [printed] / 9-16 - 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “R. C. Shannon / coll.” printed on white paper; “ 476 ” handwritten on white paper, red frame; red circle.

Note. The original type series consisted of seven males and nine females from San Isidro, Buenos Aires province. We found only six males and two females in ANLIS. Whitworth (2014) studied one male and one female from USNM, designated the male as lectotype, and synonymized this nominal species with Lucilia ochricornis (Wiedemann)  .

segmentaria pacifiencis [ Hemilucilia  ]. Mariluis, 1980: 85. Ecuador: Quevedo, Pichilingue.

PARATYPE  : one male, pinned, specimen in good condition, “ Ecuador / Quevedo-Pichilingue / 4 / 76 / Mariluis col.” handwritten on white paper; “ Paratypus ” printed on red paper, black frame; “H. seg. Pac. 80 ” handwritten on white paper; “ Hemilucilia semidiaphana  / (Rond.) Mariluis det 88 ” printed on white paper; “Henilucilia [sic!] segmentaria / pacificiencis Mariluis, 1980 ” printed on white paper.

Note. This species was synonymized with Hemilucilia semidiaphana (Rondani)  by Dear (1985).
