[ nuba  ]

Tachina nuba Wiedemann, 1830: 296  . Type locality: Sudan [“Nubien”]. 

Wohlfahrtia nuba: Verves (1985: 304, 306, key; 328–329, redescriptions of male and female, biology, faunistics, figs 313: male terminalia, lateral view, 314: female terminalia, posterior view)  ; Shanghai Institute of Entomology Academia Sinica (1992: 87; checklist); Deng et al. (2006: 49–51, redescription of male, figs 1–5: male head, anterior view, terminalia and abdomen, dorsal view).

Chinese specimens examined. None.

Distribution. Oriental and Palaearctic regions.

Remarks. Specimens of Wohlfahrtia nuba  were intercepted by the Shanghai Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau from inside an airplane cabin. The plane had departed from Luxemburg with cargo to Pudong airport, and loaded further cargo in Azerbaijan ( Deng et al. 2006). This is evidently an accidental introduction and the species is not to be considered as part of the Chinese fauna  .
