Introduction

The Museu de Zoologia da Universidade de São Paulo (MZUSP), São Paulo, Brazil, is one of the most important research institutions holding scientific zoological collections in South America. The collection is the largest and most important depository of Neotropical Diptera in Brazil and in South America, with more than 8000 species and six hundred million mounted specimens.

The family Anisopodidae encompasses seven recent genera in the world, with over 120 described species (Amorim and Tozoni, 1994Amorim, D.S., Tozoni, S.H.S., 1994.

Five genera and 65 species are known from Neotropical region (Amorim et al., 2002Amorim, D.S., Silva, V.C., Balbi, M.I.P.A., 2002. Estado do conhecimento dos Diptera neotropicais.

Following a recommendation of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN, 1999International Commission of Zoological Nomenclature (ICZN), 1999. International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, fourth ed. The International Trust for Zoological Nomenclature, The Natural History Museum, London.: 72F.4), the present paper provides a catalogue with information on 54 type specimens (including 21 holotypes and 33 paratypes) of 24 Neotropical species of the family Anisopodidae held in the collection of the MZUSP (Table 1).

Table 1
Type specimens of Anisopodidae held in the MZUSP, in alphabetical order of subfamily, genus and species epithet, with reference to the number of specimens, males and females, for each type category.

The list given below is in alphabetical order of subfamily, genus and epithet. Names, combinations and spellings follow the catalogue of Anisopodidae of the Americas south of the United States (Papavero, 1967Papavero, N., 1967. Family Anisopodidae. In: Papavero, N. (Ed.), A Catalogue of the Diptera of the Americas south of the United States São Paulo. Departamento de Zoologia da Secretaria da Agricultura do Estado de São Paulo, São Paulo, pp. 1–9.). For each species section, the first line provides the name, author and publication date. The next lines provide the taxon's original name (including figure citations), relevant citations from publications other than original description, type locality, as well as information regarding the specimen's preservation, including a list of the missing structures. Label data are quoted in double quotation marks. A vertical line separates each line in the text of each label. In case of handwriting on printed labels, the handwritten text is reproduced in italics; completely handwritten and printed labels are reproduced in regular font. Within square brackets are included additions to some of the original information on labels, such as abbreviated collecting dates, incomplete localities and names of collectors. Furthermore, when necessary, the original combination of the species was indicated within brackets. This standard for reproducing the information on the labels follows previous catalogues of Diptera housed at the MZUSP, i.e. Ribeiro et al. (2007)Ribeiro, G.C., Lamas, C.J.E., Azevedo, L.N.S., 2007.
