Remarks.

Becker (1911) firstly described Hemisphaerisoma politum  from Taiwan and gave the figure of the head. De Meijere (1913) transferred it to Chalcidomyia  , and gave the new name, Chalcidomyia beckeri  ( Chalcidomyia politum  preoccupied by Chalcidomyia polita  de Meijere (1910)). Thressa beckeri  (de Meijere) was treated as synonymy with Thressa punctifera  (de Meijere) from Java by Duda (1934), but Sabrosky (1977) accepted them as two distinct species.
