Phtyria chilena Rondani, 1863  

ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION: 1863: 65.

TYPE LOCALITY: “ Chiliae [ Chile]”   .

TYPE MATERIAL: 1 ♀, holotype ( MZUN: Box Bombilidei B 03, 03): Phtyria chilensis   [sic!] Phil, Chili [= Chile] / M. Zool. N° 11106   .

CURRENT STATUS: valid species, as Phthiria chilena   ( Evenhuis & Greathead 1999: 25, 2015: 26).

REMARKS: Rondani (1863: 65) described Phtyria chilena   , without specifying either the number   or the sex of the specimens, but giving a single measurement of length, from material received from R.A. Philippi, to whom he attributed the species name. Costa (1866: 37) listed a single MZUN specimen (as Phthiria chilensis Phil.   ) numbered “855”. Rondani described this nominal species under the generic name Phtyria   , which is an “unjustified emendation of Phthiria Meigen, 1803   ” ( O’Hara et al. 2011: 144). Evenhuis & Greathead (1999: 25) reported the specimen in the MZUN to be a holotype.
