Key to world species of genus Macgregoromyia  

Except for the new species, the key was compiled based on the literature as indicated. For brevicula   , celestia   , shikokuana   and szechwanensis   include reference to the very detailed figures in Savchenko 1983 (wing and male genitalia). For fohkienensis   includes a female specimen from Chinese province Zhejiang.
