Coenosia brunneigena Emden, 1940: 149  , stat. nov.

( Figs 62–64View FIGURES 53 – 64)

Holotype male seen; in good condition.

Diagnosis. General colour brown with grey pollinosity; scutum with five brown vittae; face, parafacial and gena brown dusted; palpus dark brown; fore coxa yellow, mid and hind coxae grey pollinose; antennal insertion a little projecting; postpedicel long, about three times as long as pedicel; arista with short hairs; scutellum with both pairs of setae long, with setulae on disc; all katepisternals long and similar in size; lower calypter small and subtriangular, only slightly projecting beyond the upper one; haltere yellow; crossvein r-m more or less at the middle of the discal cell; fore tibia with no median seta; hind tibia with one median anterodorsal and one small posterodorsal; sternite 5 as in Fig. 62View FIGURES 53 – 64.

Male terminalia. Cercal plate and surstylus as in Fig. 63View FIGURES 53 – 64. Aedeagal complex as in Fig. 64View FIGURES 53 – 64.

Notes. Originally described in Coenosia  as a subspecies of C. heterocnemis Emden, 1940  and based on one male from Nyamgasani. In addition to the morphological characters mentioned by Emden (1940), the sternite 5, the length of the hypandrium and the shape of the aedeagus are very different from C. heterocnemis  (see Figs 83–85View FIGURES 77 – 88), which led us to revise the status of this subspecies. The holotype was dissected and illustrated.
