Elaeotoma Costa, 1863: 49  . Type species: Elaeotoma adustiventris Costa, 1863: 50  (monotypy) [= albibarbe ( Meigen, 1820)  ].

Description. Robust body, size range between 10 ̶ 25 mm. Head with a prominent facial gibbosity, mystax with long, strong setae. Body flattened dorsoventrally, proboscis, wide on its basal part and constricted at the apex. Antennae, third segment (flagellum) quite expanded (capitate). Thorax with short, thin, almost erected pilosity on the mesonotum anteriorly, longer and thicker setae laterally and posteriorly. Smoked wings with two submarginal cells. Bright, wide abdomen with a short and flattened pilosity dorsaly; abundant setae laterally on the first four or five segments. Legs with swollen femora; femora and tibiae with long, abundant setae. Male terminalia rather large, rotate, with the epandrium moderately long and undivided, hypandrium quite small; gonostylus arising from gonocoxite apically. Female terminalia with wide, triangular and convex eighth tergite; also thin, elongated ninth tergite, apically setose ( Hull, 1962).

Three of them are Afrotropical, four Australian, four Neartic, 37 Neotropical, two Oriental and 14 Palaeartic.
