status

 

167. Ephyra Robineau-Desvoidy, 1863b: 156   .

ORIGINALLY INCLUDED SPECIES: Phorinia micromera Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830   ; Ephyra laeta   Robineau- Desvoidy, 1863.

TYPE SPECIES: Phorinia micromera Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830   [= Tachina selecta Meigen, 1824   ], by original designation.

CURRENT STATUS: Preoccupied by Péron & Lesueur, 1810; Duponchel, 1829; Roux, 1831; junior synonym of Bessa Robineau-Desvoidy, 1863   [teste Herting & Dely-Draskovits (1993: 142)].

FAMILY: TACHINIDAE   .

REMARKS: When Monceaux put together Robineau-Desvoidy’s 1863 work, he indicated in a footnote (1863b: 156) that the name Ephyra   was not a good choice since it was preoccupied in the “Médusaires” (= Péron & Lesueur, 1810), the “Lépidoptères” (= Duponchel, 1829), and the “Crustacés” (= Roux, 1831); but he refrained from taking the liberty of proposing a different name and kept the name in Robineau- Desvoidy’s manuscript.
