Acidogona melanura (Loew)  

Distribution. The following are new records or indicate the basis for some of the distribution points on map 1 of Foote et al. (1993) or the range listed for this species by Norrbom et al. (1999). The records from Alabama and Oklahoma extended the known distribution of this species considerably westward. Those from Georgia and New York are the first records from those states. The locality in Quebec (the site of Frank McAlpine’s cottage) is north of Ottawa (Jeff Cumming, pers. comm.), not opposite James Bay as indicated on the Foote et al. map, thus this species is not known to occur so far to the north as is indicated on the map. The outlying distribution points for Euaresta bella (Loew)   (map 14), Jamesomyia geminata (Loew)   (map 31), and Paramyiolia nigricornis (Doane)   (map 32) are also based on misplotted dots for this locality.

A single very teneral male from Chihuahua (AMNH collection), the only specimen of Acidogona   known from northern Mexico, is similar to A. melanura   , but its identity remains uncertain.
