( Figs. 3View Figs, 17View Figs, and 42–46View FigsView Figs)

Scatopse notata (Linnaeus, 1758)  : 588 ( Tipula  ). Type locality: ‘Europe’.

Type?

Diagnosis. Large specimens ( Fig. 3View Figs). R 5 running apart of C and reaching anterior wing margin on distal third of wing; a weak incomplete spurious vein between M 1 and R 5 ( Fig. 44View Figs). Anterior spiracle on a small dorsal sclerite entirely separate from rest of proepimeron ( Fig. 43View Figs). Male first tarsomere of hind leg shorter and wider than second tarsomere. Male with very complex terminalia, sternite 9 Y-shaped, gonocoxites fused to epandrium laterally, ventrally reduced to a pair of arms; gonostyle and paramere setose at apex; cerci largely developed. Female sternite 8 ( Figs. 17View Figs and 45–46View Figs) with two pairs of distal projections—the gonapophyses 8 and a pair of medial projections—and a wide medial plate with fine setation along distal margin.

Distribution. Cosmopolitan.

Remarks. This species is cosmopolitan, but not usually collected at tropical latitudes. In South America, there are records for Chile and southern Brazil ( Amorim 1982, 2009). There are records of S. notata  in different parts of continental United States ( Cook 1957). This species is quite rare in our material and includes only four females, collected at sites 11, 30, 34, and 37 between January and March. Scatopse notata  can be easily recognized among the scatopsid species found in California by the long R5 running separate from C, reaching the margin on the distal third of the

wing with a (weak) spurious vein between M 1 and R 5. Specimens of S. notata  are 3.5 mm long, larger than all remaining scatopsid

species found in California.

The BOLDSystems website has sequences of 103 specimens of

Scatopse  , corresponding to three clusters, one of which —probably

Scatopse notata  —with 77 specimens (http://boldsystems.org/index.
