Alluaudomyia caribbeana Spinelli and Wirth

Alluaudomyia caribbeana Spinelli and Wirth, 1984: 678 . ( Belize); Borkent and Grogan 2009: 18 (in Nearctic catalog; distribution).

Discussion. This is a wide ranging primarily Neotropical species that is known from the southern United States in Arizona, California, Florida and Texas, Sinaloa, Mexico south throughout Central America to Colombia and Venezuela, and in the Caribbean region in Haiti, Jamaica and Puerto Rico ( Borkent and Spinelli 2007). However, this species was not included in the list of Florida biting midges by Wilkening et al. (1985), probably because it was published just prior to their review. It is known only in Florida by a female collected in Dade Co. ( Spinelli and Wirth 1984).
