Abstract

Coremacera fabricii, nom.n. is suggested as a new name for Coremacera cincta (Fabricius) described originally as Musca cincta Fabricius and preoccupied by Musca cincta Müller. The diagnostic characters of Melina alpina Frey are completed and the species is referred to the genus Pherbellia R.-D. The following synonymy is stated on the basis of the type specimen examinations: Phaeomyia pictifrons Becker = Pelidnoptera fuscipennis (Meigen), Sciomyza conjungens Enderlein = Pherbellia alpina (Frey), Ditaenia uliginosa Enderlein = Pherbellia brunnipes (Meigen), Sciomyza atripedella Boheman = Pherbellia griseola (Fallén), Dasypleura latigena Enderlein and Dasypleura palaestinensis Enderlein = Pherbellia pilosa (Hendel). The detailed study of the original descriptions and figures published by Harris (1780) resulted in establishing the oldest name Elgiva solicita (Harris), comb.n. for Elgiva sundewalli Kloet & Hincks, 1945 and into a further three synonyms: Musca crocus Harris = Knutsonia albiseta (Scopoli), Musca tristis Harris = Coremacera marginata (Fabricius) and Musca varicus Harris = Limnia unguicornis (Scopoli). Musca punctata Fabricius (= Pherbellia schoenherri (Fallén)) represents only a primary homonym of Musca punctata Poda.
