Abstract

The family Tanypezidae is reported from Alabama for the first time based on a specimen of Tanypeza picticornis Knab and Shannon collected in the Red Hills region of southern Alabama. This record represents a significant southward extension of the known range of T. picticornis, which was previously known only from as far south as Maryland and Virginia. The collecting site of the specimen is the southernmost locality known for the genus Tanypeza.
