Genus Betasyrphus Matsumura 

The genus Betasyrphus  has approximately 18 species in the Afrotropical, Palaearctic and Oriental regions. Whittington (2003) in his assessment of the Afrotropical Syrphidae  fauna, lists Betasyrphus  among the Afrotropical genera in need of revision like most of Syrphidae  .
