[ Philornis seguyi García, 1952   ]

= “moscas del género Philornis   ”:

ARGENTINA: [Buenos Aires: Pdo. Magdalena]: northeast of the province, 2005–2008, ectoparasitism of flies of the genus Philornis ( Segura & Reboreda 2011)   .

Sicalis flaveola pelzelni Sclater, 1872  

DIPTERA   : Muscidae  

Philornis downsi Dodge & Aitken, 1968  

ARGENTINA: Chaco: Parque Nacional Chaco, larvae # CH 00009a, CH 00009b 1 -b 2, CH 0009c 1 -c 2 [ CPFE], in one nest (Antoniazzi et al. 2011); total of 7 larvae (6 at the third instar and 1 at the first instar stage), # CH 00009 a, CH 00009 b 1 -b 2, CH 00009 c 1 -c 2 [ WPC], found free among the nest material in a nest belonging to a pair of saffron finches; none of them being in the subcutis of the nestlings, and only one observed on one of the nestlings, although also crawling free; all third instars incubated at room temperature to obtain the adults, identified using the keys of Couri (1999) and de Carvalho & Couri (2002); consensus sequences of the internal transcribed spacer 1 (ITS 1) and ITS 2 regions of three of the specimens collected submitted to GenBank [ITS 1 Accession No. HQ 834531 View Materials ; ITS 2 Accession No. HQ 834532 View Materials ] (Silvestri et al. 2011).

Note: Silvestri et al. (2011) state that a “further investigation is needed to determine whether Argentina is part of the historical range of P. downsi   or, alternatively, represents a recent expansion of its range”. Independently of this work, Schühli et al. (2011) found adults of P. downsi   with Malaise traps in PARAGUAY: Canindeyú: Reserva Natural del Bosque Mbaracayú, Jejuí-Mi, A.C.F. Costa leg., 29 -III- 9 - IV-1996, 2 females; 11-17 - IV-1996, 1 female; 1-8 - V-1996, 1 female; 9-15 - V-1996, 1 male, 1 female; 16-23 - V-1996, 1 male, 1 female; 6-10 - VII-1996, 1 female [ MNHNP; PJSM].
