Agromyza latipennis Malloch, 1914: 321  .

Remarks. This species is similar to A. comosa  in having the distinctly pilose first flagellomere of antenna, dark fringe on the calypter, and membranous processes on ventral side of the basiphallus, but is recognized by its smaller size (wing length 1.9–2.1 mm), absence of the fore-tibial external bristle, and globular form of the distiphallus (Sasakawa 1972: fig. 2). Host plant: Digitaria  spp. ( Poaceae  ).
