A revision of Meigen's Chloropidae collection in the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris (Diptera)

E.P. Nartshuk

Abstract. Chloropidae of Meigen's collection in Paris (54 species) are examined, including 35 species described by Meigen (1830, 1838). New synonymy is established: Oscinella nigerrima (Macquart, 1835) = Chlorops nigritus Meigen, 1838: Lasiambiapalposa (Fallén, 1820) = Chlorops ater Meigen, 1838; Rhopalopterum anthracinum (Meigen, 1830) = Chlorops glaberrimus Meigen, 1838; Oscinella vindicata (Meigen, 1830) = O. horiensis Collin 1946; Meromyza variegata Meigen, 1830 = M. lidiae Nartshuk, 1992; M. femorata Macquart, 1835 = M. laeta Meigen, 1838. Chlorops lucida Meigen, 1838 and C. vindicata (Meigen, 1830) are restored from synonymy and considered to be good species Thaumatomyia lucida (Meigen) and Oscinella vindicata (Meigen), respectively. Lectotypes are designated for following Meigen's species: Eurina lurida, Chlorops calceatus, C hypostigma, C. geminatus, C. cingulatus, C. pygmaeus, C. simplex, C. lucidus, L. femoralis, C. sulcicollis, C. glaberrimus, C. fascipes, C. nitidissimus, Meromyza pratorum, M. variegata, and M. laeta. The following currently accepted synonymy is confirmed by examination of Meigen's types: Chlorops strigulus (Fabricius, 1794) = C. cingulata Meigen, 1830; Thaumatomyia notata (Meigen, 1830) = C. circumdata Meigen, 1830, T. rufa (Macquart, 1835) = C. simplex Meigen, 1838; Siphonella oscimna (Fallén, 1820) = C. angustifrons Meigen, 1830; Elachiptera cornuta (Fallén, 1820) = C. femoralis Meigen, 1838; Rhopalopterum anthracinum (Meigen, 1830) = C. glaberrimus Meigen, 1838, Rhopalopterum fasciolum (Meigen, 1830) = C. fascipes Meigen 1838. Types of 9 species described by Meigen are found neither in MNHP, nor m NHMW. A new species Meromyza meigeni sp. n. is described for M. laeta sensu Ismay (1981) and Nartshuk (1992). Meromyza variegata sensu Ismay (1981), Beschovski (1985) and Nartshuk (1992) is considered to be M. athletica Fedoseeva, 1974, and a redescription of this species is given.
