Peromyia almensis Berest, 1989
status

 

Peromyia almensis Berest, 1989  —new junior synonym of Peromyia caricis (Kieffer, 1901) 

Material studied: holotype male and one (slide number 33- 86 -v- 1) of three paratype males, with the data specified in the original description ( Berest 1989).

My re-examination of the two type specimens revealed that P. almensis  is identical with P. caricis  . The genitalia of the neotype of P. caricis  were illustrated by Jaschhof (2001: fig. 11). Berest’s (1989) differential diagnosis of P. almensis  makes reference to P. borealis (Felt, 1920)  , a species that in my opinion is only distantly related to P. caricis  (see Jaschhof 1998).
