Silbomyia Macquart


Genus Silbomyia Macquart  

The genus is largely Oriental , distributed from India and China to Timor. In Australia, one species (S. minor, known from a unique female) is recorded from north Queensland and one (S. palpalis   , knownfrom 3 males) fromnorthwestern Australia. The genus does not seem well characterised, but I have too little material to attempt a revision   .
