Coniceromyia vespertilio Schmitz, 1927: 78   . Refs.: Schmitz 1929: 126, figs. 30–31; Borgmeier 1950: 286, textfigs. 6, 8. Holotype ♂, original label states: “Brasilia” (NMW).

Diagnosis (male). Wing apical third maculated; wing margin invaginated at end of M2 and CuA1.

Material examined. 1♂, BRAZIL: Rio de Janeiro: Nova Friburgo (Muri): Pousada Amantes da Natureza, 22º24’41’’S, 42º31’13’’W, 20–23.ix.2015, Malaise, Ament, Amorim & Brown col. ( MZSP).

Geographical distribution. Southeastern Brazil.

Comments. The hypopygium of Coniceromyia vespertilio   has no conspicuous differences in relation to that of C. epicantha   and C. franciscana   . The affinities of C. vespertilio   are discussed under C. epicantha   comments. The holotype of C. vespertilio   has three labels ( Fig. 333 View FIGURES 331 – 334 ). The material was collected much before Schmitz's description and belonged to the Winthem collection, purchased by the Wien Naturhistorisches Museum in 1880 (see, e.g., Pont 1986). Different collections were bought by Winthem, including material from Wiedemann, and it is not even possible to know who was the collector and the precise type locality. The only geographical indication in the original label is “Brasilia”, which should be considered equivalent to “ Brazil ”, since the city of Brasilia did not exist at that time. The collection of a second specimen of the species is very fortunate in the sense of giving an indication of its actual distribution.
