Robinson), S. scintillans (Loew) (= dubiosus Van Duzee, fulgidus Parent), Thinophilus viridifacies Van Duzee (= nigripilosus Van Duzee, Chrysotus quadratus Van Duzee). The following transfers have been made: Achalcus sordidus Aldrich to Enlinia, Chrysotus parvus Van Duzee to Telmaturgus, Diaphorus cylindricus Van Duzee to Nematoproctus, D. palpiger Wheeler to Chrysotus, D. rauterbergi Wheeler to Chrysotus, Neurigona dorsalis Van Duzee, setosa Van Duzee, and tibialis Van Duzee to Hercostomus, N. minima Van Duzee to Micromorphus, N. minuta Van Duzee to Systenus, N. nigricornis Van Duzee and sombrea Harmston & Knowlton to Neurigonella, Paraclius albonotatus Loew, angulatus Van Duzee, indianus Harmston & Knowlton, mysticus Becker to Tachytrechus, Polymedon notatus Van Duzee to Tachytrechus, Sympycnus canadensis Van Duzee to Lamprochromus, Telmaturgus satrapa (Wheeler) to Lamprochromus.
