Thread subject: :: Milichiidae in Bezzi's collection

Thanks Tony. Indeed I forgot to add 'Milichiidae'. None of the rufitarsis species described by Meigen are Milichiidae, and, according to Systema Dipterorum, the valid name for Gymnopa rufitarsis today is Parydra (Parydra) coarctata Fallén, Ephydridae, that's why I was unable to associate it with Mallochiella rufitarsis. On the Milichiidae site I see that a synonym of Madiza glabra is Madiza flavitarsis, and just this morning I was wondering if Bezzi simply wrote rufitarsis instead flavitarsis without checking.
