Agromyza comosa Spencer 

Agromyza comosa Spencer, 1962 a: 662  .

Material examined. ♂, Phitsanulo, Thung Salaeng Luang National Park, 16 ˚ 50.217 ´N, 101 ˚ 52.541 ´E, 580 m a.s.l., 11–18 viii 2006, Malaise trap, Pongpitak Pranee.

Remarks. This large (wing length 2.4–2.7 mm), black species was described from a male from Myanmar (Spencer 1962 a), and was later recorded from Taiwan (Sasakawa? 1972). The long pile on the first antennal flagellomere, an external bristle on the fore tibia and a pair of apically spinulose, membranous processes at the ventral midpoint of the basiphallic sclerites, are distinctive (see phallus, Sasakawa 1972: fig. 1; Spencer 1962 a: fig. 2 b, membranous processes were not illustrated). Host plant is unknown.

Distribution. Myanmar, Thailand (new record), Taiwan.
