Abstract

The Melaloncha furcata-group of bee-killing flies is revised, and two subdivisions recognized: the M. furcata-subgroup and the M. obscurella-subgroup. The M. furcata-subgroup consists of M. furcata, a species described from males only and thus not currently recognizable, and thirteen new species: M. calceola, M. curvata, M. diffidentia, M. elongata, M. gibberosa, M. gongyla, M. hirtipecta, M. inversa, M. kungae, M. lingula, M. ovata, M. pilula, and M. varicosa. The M. obscurella-subgroup consists of M. obscurella Borgmeier, and six new species: M. mapiriensis, M. atlantica, M. dactyla, M. catervula, M. clandestina, and M. chamaea. Possible hosts are known for some species, mostly stingless bees of the genus Plebeia.
