Holotype male seen; in good condition.

Diagnosis. Small species (2.6–3.5mm); general colour brown, with grey pollinosity; dorsum of scutum and abdomen a liitle glossy; palpus brown; legs brown with grey pollinosity; antennal insertion projecting a little; postpedicel about 2.2 times the length of the pedicel; arista with very short hairs; scutellum with both pairs of setae present and long; scutellum with hairs on disc; all katepisternals long and similar in size; lower calypter short and only slightly projecting beyond the upper one; haltere yellow; fore tibia with one median short seta; hind tibia with one median anterodorsal and one median short anteroventral.

Notes. Originally described in Coenosia  . The holotype has a species name label bearing an unpublished manuscript name. Apparently Emden changed his mind and decided to give the species another name. We have added a new label, C. fordi  , to the holotype. All the paratypes are females.
