Genus Hoplandromyia Bezzi 

Hoplandromyia Bezzi, 1923: 577  . Type-species: H. tetracera Bezzi, 1923  , by original designation.

Diagnosis. This genus is closely related to Vidalia Robineau-Desvoidy  by having 4–5 frontal setae, and most of them occurred on prominent tubercles, but differs from the latter by the following combination of characteristics: 1) male frons usually posteriorly produced into prominent tubercles; 3–4 pairs of frontal and 1 pair of orbital setae on tubercles, of which the 2 nd frontal seta usually greatly enlarged and flattened, 3 rd frontal seta often moderately enlarged; 2) generally blackish bodied; 3) typically with Philophylla  -like wing pattern, with a large basomedian brown patch and a narrow C-shaped brown band in apical portion.

With the addition of 2 new species described below, 9 species are now known, 5 of which are from the Afrotropical region, 1 from Malaysia, and 3 from China. The larvae of H. madagascariensis Hancock  mine the leaves of Canthiun humberti ( Rubiaceae  ) in Madagascar (Hancock, 1985).
