( Figs. 325–326View FIGURES 325 – 330)

Coniceromyia arizonensis Borgmeier, 1962: 78  . Refs.: Borgmeier 1963a: 89, fig. 85.

Material examined. Holotype ♀, USA: Arizona: Oak Creek, 14.vii.1937, L.D. Christenson col. ( USNM). Geographical distribution. Arizona ( U.S.A.)  .

Comments. Borgmeier (1963a) described Coniceromyia arizonensis  based on a female holotype, diagnosing this species by its M1 ending far from the wing tip. This feature, however, is considerably widespread in the genus and it is not sufficient alone to separate it from many other species of Coniceromyia  . The geographical distribution suggests that males described as C. auristriata Borgmeier  may correspond to the female holotype of C. arizonensis  . Additional material from the United States and a better sampling of the genus along this distribution would be necessary, however, before any decision concerning synonymizing both species.
