Abstract

Wyeomyia (Dendromyia) luteoventralis is redescribed from
females, males, larvae and pupae collected at the type locality,
in Brazil and compared to the closely related species. At least
six species - Wy. luteoventralis, Wy. ypsipola, Wy. testei, Wy.
trifurcata. Wy. complosa and Wy. jocosa apparently, belong to a
monophyletic group, the subgenus Dendromyia. All other species
previously included in Dendromyia are hereby excluded from, this
subgenus and retained in genus Wyeomyia without subgeneric
placement.

Keywords
