Ortalidina cellularis Blanchard 1852: 455  . Chile. Santa Rosa. LT 3 ( Fig. 10View FIGURE 10 – 15), MNHN, designated herein. Steyskal, 1968: 23 (catalog, as unplaced species, but noting likely synonymy with Acrometopia australis  ).

Toropamecia grossa Cogan 1978: 234  , syn. nov. Chile. Chiloe: Isla Chiloe, Dalcahue. HT 3 ( Fig. 11View FIGURE 10 – 15), CNC.

Lectotype designation. Due to the importance of male genitalia in identifying Chamaemyiidae  , and the poor condition of one of the two male syntypes, to avoid future confusion and to fix the identity of the type species for this genus, a lectotype is hereby designated. I choose the syntype male (mounted on left side on clear card; fair condition, slightly crushed but with little actual damage or loss of setae, right antennal pedicel and 1 st flagellomere missing; pictured in Fig. 10View FIGURE 10 – 15) with the following labels as the lectotype for Ortalidina cellularis  : “MUSEUM PARIS, CHILI, GAY 15-43 ” / “15, 43” (handwritten, on small circular label with green underside) / “ cellularis Blanch.  ” (handwritten) / “ Syntype 3 Ortalidina cellularis Blanchard  ” (handwritten, red label) / “ LECTOTYPUS 3 Ortalidina cellularis Blanchard  , des. S.D. Gaimari, 2012 ” (red label). The two paralectotypes bear the same first two labels as the lectotype, but lack the handwritten “ cellularis Blanch.  ” label; the male has the following two labels – “ Syntype 3 Ortalidina cellularis Blanchard  ” (handwritten, red label) / “ PARALECTOTYPUS 3 Ortalidina cellularis Blanchard  , des. S.D. Gaimari, 2012 ” (red label); the female has the following two labels – “ Syntype Ƥ Ortalidina cellularis Blanchard  ” (handwritten, red label) / “ PARALECTOTYPUS Ƥ Ortalidina cellularis Blanchard  , des. S.D. Gaimari, 2012 ” (red label). The lectotype and paralectotypes are deposited in MNHN.
