Abstract

This paper provides a catalogue of the type specimens of Rangomaramidae (Diptera: Bibionomorpha) held in the collection of the Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil (MZUSP). Label data and the condition of 26 type-specimens (three holotypes and 23 paratypes) of four Neotropical species are provided.

INTRODUCTION

Brazil is one of the most biodiverse countries in the world in terms of the species richness of its fauna and flora. The Brazilian most important scientific collection for animal diversity is the Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de São Paulo (MZUSP), São Paulo, Brazil. The MZUSP collection houses more than 8,000 fly species and six hundred thousand mounted specimens, being the largest and most important depository of Neotropical Diptera in Brazil and in South America. Additional information on the collection is available at www.mz.usp.br.

The family Rangomaramidae was erected by Jaschhof & Didham (2002Jaschhof, M. & Didham, R.K. 2002. Rangomaramidae fam. nov., from New Zealand and implications for the phylogeny of the Sciaroidea (Diptera: Bibionomorpha). Studia dipterologica, Supplement, 11: 1-60.) for five New Zealand species of the genus Rangomarama Jaschhof & Didham. The concept of the family was revised by Amorim & Rindal (2007Amorim, D.S. & Rindal, E. 2007. A phylogenetic study of the Mycetophiliformia, with creation of the subfamilies Heterotrichinae, Ohakuneinae, and Chiletrichinae for the Rangomaramidae (Diptera, Bibionomorpha). Zootaxa, 1535: 1-92.), who recognized four main clades ranked as subfamilies in Rangomaramidae. These subfamilies encompass genera that for quite long had an uncertain position within the Mycetophiliformia (sensuAmorim & Rindal, 2007Amorim, D.S. & Rindal, E. 2007. A phylogenetic study of the Mycetophiliformia, with creation of the subfamilies Heterotrichinae, Ohakuneinae, and Chiletrichinae for the Rangomaramidae (Diptera, Bibionomorpha). Zootaxa, 1535: 1-92. = Sciaroidea). A monophyletic Rangomaramidae, as can be seen by Amorim & Rindal’s (2007Amorim, D.S. & Rindal, E. 2007. A phylogenetic study of the Mycetophiliformia, with creation of the subfamilies Heterotrichinae, Ohakuneinae, and Chiletrichinae for the Rangomaramidae (Diptera, Bibionomorpha). Zootaxa, 1535: 1-92.) discussion, is still not to be taken for granted. Having them gathered corresponds, however, to one of the most parcimonious solutions for the problem of the relationship between four main sciaroid clades-Rangomaraminae, Ohakuneinae, Heterotrichinae and Chiletrichinae-and allowed to gather most of the genera that were unplaced in the Sciaroidea.

Six genera and twenty species of Rangomaramidae have been recorded so far for the Neotropical region, that belong to the genera Chiletricha Chandler, Eratomyia Amorim & Rindal, Ohakunea Edwards, Colonomyia Colless, Cabamofa Jaschhof and Rogambara Jaschhof (Amorim & Falaschi, 2012Amorim, D.S. & Falaschi, R.L. 2012. Catalogue of Neotropical Diptera. Rangomaramidae. Neotropical Diptera, 21: 1-7.). Catalogues of the Neotropical fauna of Rangomaramidae were presented, respectively, by Amorim & Falaschi (2012Amorim, D.S. & Falaschi, R.L. 2012. Catalogue of Neotropical Diptera. Rangomaramidae. Neotropical Diptera, 21: 1-7.), Falaschi & Amorim (2016Falaschi, R.L. & Amorim, D.S. 2016. Family Rangomaramidae. Zootaxa, 4122: 46-49.) and Falaschi (2019Falaschi, R.L. 2019. Rangomaramidae In: Catálogo Taxonômico da Fauna do Brasil. PNUD. Available at: Available at: http://fauna.jbrj.gov.br/fauna/faunadobrasil/2358 . Access in: 22/07/2019.

). There is information about an undescribed species of Ohakunea from southeastern Brazil (D.S. Amorim, pers. com.).

The present paper provides a catalogue with information on 26 type-specimens (three holotypes and 23 paratypes) of four Neotropical species of two of the genera of the family Rangomaramidae held in the collection of the MZUSP (Table 1), following a recommendation of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN, 1999International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN). 1999. International Code of Zoological Nomenclature. 4.ed. London, The International Trust for Zoological Nomenclature, The Natural History Museum. xxx + 306p.: 72F.4).

The list given below is in alphabetical order of subfamily, genus, and epithet. Names, combinations, and spellings follow the available catalogues of Rangomaramidae Amorim & Falaschi (2012Amorim, D.S. & Falaschi, R.L. 2012. Catalogue of Neotropical Diptera. Rangomaramidae.

The standard for reproducing the information on the labels follows previous catalogues of general Diptera and Bibionomorpha housed in other major museums collections of Neotropical fauna (e.g., for the Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de São Paulo, in Yamaguchi & Lamas, 2009Yamaguchi, C. & Lamas, C.J.E. 2009.

Herein we present some slide photos, but high-resolution photographs will be subsequently provided for most primary types at MZUSP’s homepage (www.mz.usp.br).
