Muscidae 

aconquija  [ Morellia  ]. Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926: 581 –582. Argentina: Tucumán, Tucumán, and Jujuy, San Pedro de Jujuy.

SYNTYPES: one female, pinned, without left wing, “Tucumán / Tuc [printed] 3.7. 26 [handwritten]” on white paper; “Shannon & / Shannon” printed on white paper; “ Morellia  / aconquija  / S&DP.” handwritten on white paper. Two females, pinned in two pins, in good condition, “Tucumán / Tuc [printed] 3.7. 26 [handwritten]” on white paper; “Shannon & / Shannon” printed on white paper. One female, pinned, in good condition, “ San Pedro de / Jujuy [printed] 4.27. 26 [handwritten]” on white paper; “Shannon & / Shannon” printed on white paper.

Note. The original type series consisted of two males and nine females from Parque Aconquija  , Tucumán City, Tucumán province, and San Pedro de Jujuy, Jujuy province. We found only four females in ANLIS. Currently synonymized with Morellia (Morellia) violacea (Robineau-Desvoidy) ( Carvalho et al. 2005)  .

carbonaria  [ Ophyra  ]. Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926: 576 –577. Argentina: Tucumán, Tucumán City.

LECTOTYPE: one male, pinned, “Tucumán / Tuc [printed] 6.21. 26 [handwritten]” on white paper; “R.C. Shannon / Coll.” printed on white paper; “ Ophyra  / carbonaria  / S.& DP.” handwritten on white paper; “ Lectotype / Ophyra carbonaria  / Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926 / L. D. Patitucci det. 2012 ” printed on red label. PARALECTOTYPES: One female, pinned, “San Isidro (Bs. As.) [printed] / 8: 25: 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame: “Shannon & / Shannon” printed on white paper; “ Ophyra  / carbonaria  ” handwritten on white paper; “ Paralectotype / Ophyra carbonaria  / Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926 / L. D. Patitucci det. 2012 ” printed on red label. Four females and two males, pinned, labels: “San Isidro (Bs. As.) [printed] / 8: 25: 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “Shannon & / Shannon” printed on white paper; “ Paralectotype / Ophyra carbonaria  / Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926 / L. D. Patitucci det. 2012 ” printed on red label.

Note. Described from 11 males and three females as syntypes from Buenos Aires and Tucumán. As noted by Patitucci et al. (2013), the number of female specimens belonging to the type series exceeds the original number of three females. The lectotype and seven paralectotypes (five females and two males) from Buenos Aires are housed in ANLIS (Patitucci et al. 2013). The date of collection of the syntypes in ANLIS differs from the published date of “ 21 de julio de 1926 ”. We consider the published date to be in error and the specimens in ANLIS to be the original syntypes because they bear the usual labels used by R.C. Shannon for his types. Synonymized with Ophyra aenescens  by Aldrich (1928) and Shannon & Del Ponte (1928). (Additional specimens, see entry of O. carbonaria  from CFA.)

platensis  [ Phyronota  ]. Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926: 578. Argentina: Buenos Aires, Capital Federal.

LECTOTYPE: one female, pinned, in good condition, “Cap. Federal / Buenos Aires / 15.9. 26 / R.C. Shannon” handwritten on white paper; “ Phyronota  / platensis  / S & D P.” handwritten on white paper, “ Lectotype / Phyronota platensis  / Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926 / L. D. Patitucci det. 2012 ” printed on red paper.

Note. Described from one male and one female as syntypes from Buenos Aires Province, Argentina. The lectotype was designated by Patitucci et al. (2013). Currently synonymized with Psilochaeta chlorogaster (Wiedemann) ( Carvalho et al. 2005)  .

portensis  [ Phyronota  ]. Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926: 577. Argentina: Buenos Aires, Adrogué.

LECTOTYPE: one male, pinned, in good condition, “E. Del Ponte Coll [printed] / ♂ En copula [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “Adrogue (B A) [printed] / 12.9. 26 [handwritten]” on white paper, black frame; “ Lectotype / Phyronota portensis  / Shannon & Del Ponte, 1926 / L. D. Patitucci det. 2012 ” printed on red paper.

Note. Described from seven males and four females as syntypes from Buenos Aires province, Argentina. The lectotype was designated by Patitucci et al. (2013), and three male paralectotypes are housed in USNM. Synonymized with Psilochaeta chalybea (Wiedemann)  by Shannon & Del Ponte (1928). (Additional specimens, see entry of P. portensis  from CFA.)
