The paratype series of Megaselia globipyga Borgmeier was found to contain two species, neither of which matched the holotype. The holotype of M. globipyga is here fully illustrated for clarity, and new biological and geographical data for the species are given. A new species, Megaselia risoria Hartop, Wong, and Eiseman, is described from two of the paratypes of M. globipyga, a paratype from the original type series of M. postcrinata Borgmeier, and a singleton from the BioSCAN Project.
