Type-species: Coenosia albiseta Stein   (orig. desc.).

Diagnosis. Ground-color black, silver dust on head; thorax and abdomen grey. Frons broad in both sexes ( Figs 13B View FIGURE 13 , 14B View FIGURE 14 ). Epistoma not protruding ( Figs 1C, D View FIGURE 1 ). One pair of upper orbital setae directed backwards ( Fig. 1B View FIGURE 1 ). Inner and outer vertical setae longer than ocellar seta; ocellar seta shorter or similar to postocellar seta. Fronto-orbital plate narrow and bare, except for S. capribarba   ( Fig. 14B View FIGURE 14 ) and S. inculta   ( Fig. 20B View FIGURE 20 ). Postpedicel with pointed apex, not reaching epistoma ( Fig. 1D View FIGURE 1 ). Arista short pubescent ( Fig. 1C View FIGURE 1 ), long pubescent ( Fig. 16B View FIGURE 16 ) or bare. Palpus slender. Prosternum bare. Dorsocentral setae 1+3; intra-alar setae 1+2, except for S. inculta   1+1; supra-alar setae 1+1; 1 postalar seta; 2 basal postpronotal setae; 2 notopleural setae; prealar seta absent. Lateral margin of scutellum bare; basal scutellar seta subequal in length to the apical scutellar seta, except for S. garleppi   . Lower proepisternal seta directed downward; 2 proepisternal setae; anepisternum with 4–6 setae; katepisternal setae 1+1+1 forming an equilateral triangle. Halter yellowish, except for S. nigrisquama   sp. nov. Vein R 4+5 parallel apically ( Fig.1G View FIGURE 1 ); vein r-m almost straight. Calypteres developed, upper calypter glossiform and lower elongated, about twice as long as the upper one ( Fig. 1E View FIGURE 1 ). Sternite 1 bare. Tergites 3 to 5 with developed lateral marginal seta; tergite 5 with developed discal seta. Male: cercus rectangular ( Figs 3B, E, H View FIGURE 3 and 4B, E, H View FIGURE 4 ); surstylus long, longer than cercus in ventral view

( Figs 3B, E, H View FIGURE 3 and 4B, E, H View FIGURE 4 ); hypandrium tubular ( Figs 2A, 2 View FIGURE 2 C–F, 3C, F, I and 4C, F, I); distiphallus curved and membranous on apical half ( Figs 2 View FIGURE 2 E–F, 3C, F, I and 4C, F, I); epiphallus usually longer than postgonite ( Figs 3F, I View FIGURE 3 and 4F, I View FIGURE 4 ), except for S. albiseta   and S. capribarba   (3C and 4C, respectively) that are equal or subequal; postgonite comma-like ( Figs 3C, F, I View FIGURE 3 and 4C, F, I View FIGURE 4 ). Female: ovipositor long, with microtrichia ( Figs 5 View FIGURE 5 A–E), tergites 6 and 7 slender; cerci long and slender; epiproct three times longer than wide; three spermathecae pear-shaped.
