Abstract

Plant A. R. & Daugeron C. 2009. — A new species of Phyllodromia Zetterstedt, 1837 (Insecta, Diptera, Empididae, Hemerodromiinae) from Vanuatu. Zoosystema 31 (3): 519-524.

Phyllodromia variabilis n. sp. (Diptera, Empididae, Hemerodromiinae) is described from Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu and provisionally assigned to Phyllodromia Zetterstedt, 1837. Systematic relationships with other Phyllodromia species and with the closely related genus Chelipoda Macquart, 1823 are discussed and it is concluded that the new species is probably more closely related to species of Phyllodromia from New Zealand than those of the Northern Hemisphere.
