The Genus Syritta. A World Revision of the Genus Syritta Le Peletier & Servilla, 1828 (Diptera: Syrphidae).
224 pp. Colour figures and line drawings. Intensive collecting activity by Australian and American entomologists from about 1980 - 2000 has demonstrated, that Australia has a more species-rich fauna of stiletto-flies than any other continent. Hundreds and hundreds of undescribed species have been discovered and many of these will hopefully be named in the near future. This work presents a taxonomic revision of nearly one hundred species of Australian stiletto-flies. They are temporarily assembled in the 'genus' Anabarhynchus Macquart, 1848, and form an obviously paraphyletic group. Members of the 'genus' are distributed throughout Australia, with one species occurring in Papua New Guinea, and a subspecies of a widely distributed Australian species occurring in New Caledonia and adjacent groups of islands in the western Pacific. The Australian Anabarhynchus members form a Gondwanan faunal element together with other species from New Zealand, some largely undocumented taxa from southern South
