( Fig. 6DView FIGURE 6)

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

Wohlfahrtia volucris Séguy, 1941: 226  . Tunisia.

Wohlfahrtia longicorpuris MaWlood & Abdul-Rassoul, 2001: 43  , syn. nov. Iraq.

Wohlfahrtia longicurpuris: MaWlood & Abdul-Rassoul (2001: 46)  , incorrect original spelling (by First Reviser action in present paper).

Distribution. Palaearctic—Afghanistan, Armenia, AZerbaijan, Cyprus, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Morocco, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, United Arab Emirates, UZbekistan; Afrotropical—Nigeria, Senegal, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen; Oriental—India (Punjab), Pakistan.

Remarks. Mawlood & Abdul-Rassoul (2001) provided two different spellings for their newly proposed nominal species. Wohlfahrtia longicorpuris  is used in the abstract, in the teXt (pages 43–44), and in the captions to their figures 1–4, while Wohlfahrtia longicurpuris  is used in the Persian summary (page 46). The second spelling is probably a lapsus, and we are here acting as First Reviser in accordance with Article 24.2.3 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature ( ICZN 1999), selecting Wohlfahrtia longicorpuris  to be the correct spelling. Mawlood & Abdul-Rassoul (2001: 44) considered their new species to be “closely related to W. nuba  ”, and they provided a number of differences including more eXtensive white microtomentum and the “quarter apical of hypophallus strongly tapering to apical word [sic]”. We consider all character states provided for Wohlfahrtia longicorpuris  , including those of the male terminalia and eXternal morphology, to fit the circumscription of W. nuba  as provided by Verves (1985) and Lehrer (2003). Mawlood & Abdul-Rassoul (2001) described their species on adult material bred from larvae obtained from a human facial ulcer and raised on minced meat, which is in agreement with W. nuba  being known as a facultative producer of myiasis ( Verves 1985; Hall et al. 2009).
