Abstract

The sarcophagid flies that breed in North American pitcher plants of the genus Sarracenia are taxonomically revised and described. The species are as follows: Sarcophaga sarraceniae Riley, 1874; Fletcherimyia abdita Pape 1990; Fletcherimyia celarata (Aldrich, 1916); Fletcherimyia fletcheri (Aldrich, 1916); Fletcherimyia folkertsi Dahlem & Naczi sp. nov.; Fletcherimyia jonesi (Aldrich, 1916); Fletcherimyia oreophilae Dahlem & Naczi sp. nov.; Fletcherimyia papei Dahlem & Naczi sp. nov.; and Fletcherimyia rileyi (Aldrich, 1916). Life history information is provided, including host associations between the flies and pitcher plant species. Misidentifications and dubious identifications present in the literature are discussed. Literature reviews are provided for all species. Illustrations of the male and female genitalia should allow identification of all the included species. A key is provided to sort male specimens whose genitalia have not been spread.
