Centorisoma elegantulum Becker, 1910. (= Lagaroceras granulosum Becker, 1910), Chloropidae, Chloropinae, male. One of the rare chloropids in Europe; Wendt published three findings in eastern Germany, two detections in northern and southern Germany are in print. Flies of the genus look a bit like Cetema species. The genus is closely related to Lagaroceras Becker and difficult to distinguish from it. 21 further valid Centorisoma species are known from Kazakhstan, Sibiria, Mongolia, China, Korea and Japan, 12 of them described after 2004.
