Abstract

Nepalomyia Hollis and Neurigonella Robinson are synonymized. The genus Nepalomyia is more fully characterized and the Nearctic species are revised. Nepalomyia nigricornis (Van Duzee) and N. sombrea (Harmston & Knowlton) are reassigned and redescribed. Two new species, N. dilaticosta Runyon & Hurley and N. hesperia Runyon & Hurley, are described. New combinations are created for the following non-Nearctic species: Nepalomyia bidentata (Yang & Saigusa), N. brevifurcata (Yang & Saigusa), N. crassata (Yang & Saigusa), N. daliensis (Yang & Saigusa), N. daweishana (Yang & Saigusa), N. dentata (Yang & Saigusa), N. flava (Yang & Saigusa), N. furcata (Yang & Saigusa), N. henanensis (Yang, Yang, & Li), N. longa (Yang & Saigusa), N. longiseta (Yang & Saigusa), N. luteipleurata (Yang & Saigusa), N. pallipes (Yang & Saigusa), N. pallipilosa (Yang & Saigusa), N. pilifera (Yang & Saigusa), N. pingbiana (Yang & Saigusa), N. tatjanae (Negrobov), N. trifurcata (Yang & Saigusa), N. tuberculosa (Yang & Saigusa), N. yunnanensis (Yang & Saigusa), and N. zhouzhiensis (Yang & Saigusa). A key to Nearctic males and females and a catalog of the world Nepalomyia are provided.
