New combinations and synonymies for Neotropical species of Diaphorinae (Diptera: Dolichopodidae)

Renato Soares Capellari, Dalton De Souza Amorim
Based on examination of the Dolichopodidae (Diptera) material in the Senckenberg Naturhistorische Sammlung Dresden, eight Neotropical species of Diaphorus Meigen are herein transferred to the genus Chrysotus Meigen: C. amicus (Parent), comb. n.; C. ciliatus (Becker), comb. n. (= C. superbiens (Parent), comb. n. et syn. n.); C. hamatus (Parent), comb. n.; C. vicinus (Becker), comb. n., nec Parent; C. luteipalpus (Parent), comb. n.; C. mediotinctus (Becker), comb. n.; C. propinquus (Becker),
more » ... quus (Becker), comb. n. Additionally, C. kallweiti Capellari & Amorim, nom. n. is proposed as a replacement name for C. vicinus Parent, nec C. vicinus (Becker), comb. n., and C. diligens Parent is found to be a junior-synonym of C. viridis Becker. Lectotype and paralectotypes are designated for species with syntypes in their type-series. The mediotinctus-group is proposed within Chrysotus for a small clade including five South American species, and an identification key to the species of the group is provided.
