Selected literature: Hardy (1956): 84 – 85, fig. 9 a – c; Hardy (1960): 228 – 229, fig. 76 a – e (all as Sciara (Lycoriella) solispina  );

Steffan (1973a): 358; Steffan (1974a): 47 (both as Lycoriella solispina  ); Mohrig et al. (2013): 216 – 217, fig. 39 a – d;

Broadley et al. (2018): 216 – 217, 220 – 222, 224, fig. 6 A – D.

Material studied: Lycoriella solispina ( Hardy)  , Holotype: Male, x.1952, Hawai‘i, Ka‘ula Gulch, north slopes of Mauna Kea , 213 m, leg. D.E. Hardy (BPBM, No. 2489).

Conservation status. Embedded in Canada balsam, Wings isolated and under a separate cover slip. All morphological structures are in good condition.

Comments. Steffan (1973a) assumed that the species is very closely related or conspecific with L. similans ( Johannsen, 1925)  [= sativae ( Johannsen, 1912)  ], but did not synonymize the two species.
