Brachylinga chilensis (Macquart)   New Combination

( Figs. 7, 30, 53, 76, 99, 122, 145, 168, 189, 209)

chilensis Macquart (1840:25   orig. desc.), Blanchard (1852:417 dist.), Kröber (1911: 491 fem. key, 496 add. desc.; 1913:55 dist.), Ortiz (1946:86 listed as junior synonym of Thereva albiventris Philippi   ), Philippi (1865:769 listing), ( Thereva   ). Type locality Chile, Santiago. Lectotype male in MNHN. New combination.

interrupta Kröber (1911: 498   male key, 500 fem. key, 507 orig. desc.; 1913:31 dist.; 1928a:6 dist., 8 male key, 11 fem. key), Malloch (1932:251, Fig. 20b ant.) ( Psilocephala   ); Metz et al. (2003:248 comb. change, LT design., 249: trans. orig. desc.) ( Brachylinga   ). Type locality Chile, Concepción. Lectotype female in USNM. New synonym.

Diagnosis

This is a highly variable species and when specimens were examined from throughout Chile the following characters exhibited considerable variation: coloration of the male frons; the presence of setae on the male frons; the parafacial pruinescence, or the presence of a medial dark reddish brown glossy area; the coloration of maxillary palpi and postocular macrosetae; the presence of dorsocentral macrosetae; the presence of a narrow dark brown margin on the wing veins; the halter coloration; coxa macrosetae color; and setae coloration on male tergites 2–7. Psilocephala interrupta Kröber   is synonomized with Brachylinga chilensis   because no discrete characters could be found to separate the two species.

Brachylinga chilensis   is taxonomically associated with B. attenuata   and B. clausa   in possessing setae on the katepisternum and in having the halter knob yellow. Brachylinga chilensis   differs from B. attenuata   and B. clausa   in having the gonocoxite in ventral view ( Fig. 30) quadrate, tapering apically to a broad point and with an aggregation of short setae basomedially; in lateral view the gonocoxite ( Fig. 76) tapers to a broad point; and the distiphallus ( Fig. 168) in lateral view is bent ventrally at a 90° angle.

Immature Stages. A male (MEI 046597), and 2♀ (MEI 046589–90) have been reared from larvae collected 70 km south of Copiapó from sand dunes and 6♂ (MEI 046602–7) and 5♀ (MEI 046598–601, 046608) have been reared from larvae collected at Bahia Copiapó from coastal dunes   .

Distribution Brachylinga chilensis   is known from Argentina and Chile ( Fig. 209).

Habitats and phenology

Brachylinga chilensis   has been handnetted and sweepnetted in dry washes and coastal dunes; collected in Malaise traps set across dry ravines, damp washes, hillside draws, and cornfields; and collected in pan traps. Adults have been collected from July through April.

Specimens examined

Type specimens. Macquart described Thereva chilensis   as a female. In the collection of the MNHN were three specimens identified to be Thereva chilensis Macquart. Two   specimens were females with a pale green paper circular label with "1ç 43" handwritten on the underside. The third specimen is a male with label 1 a pale green circle, the underside white with "ni gay chili" handwritten; label 2: red paper, " HOLOTYPE " (printed); label 3: a white paper, "Nr. 984 bis, Thereva   , chilensis" (handwritten in ink). Macquart (1840:25) did not designate a holotype for the Thereva chilensis   from Santiago, Chile and although the MNHN has attached a red HOLOTYPE label on the third specimen, it cannot be assumed to be the holotype. The male (MEI 119893) is designated as the lectotype of Thereva chilensis   . This lectotype is designated in order to fix the concept of T. chilensis   and to ensure universal and consistent interpretation of the same. The Lectotype female of Thereva interrupta Kröber (1911:507)   is labeled "Chile, Conception, 1904" and is in the USNM (Type No. 24213, MEI 113147). Other specimens. ARGENTINA. NEUQUEN.
