Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Tephritidae - Icterica westermanni?

surely Merzomyia westermanni
. My reason to exclude this species from Icterica and to erect a separate genus was that the N American Icterica and the Olde World "I." westermanni and allied licenti Chen and mongolica Korneyev actually belong to a different tribe... So Merzomyia
is the valid generic name.
