Abstract

Background

This paper describes 11 of 18 new species recognised in the recent book, "Field Guide to the Flower Flies of Northeastern North America". Four species are omitted as they need to be described in the context of a revision (three Cheilosia and a Palpada species) and three other species (one Neoascia and two Xylota) will be described by F. Christian Thompson in a planned publication. Six of the new species have been recognised for decades and were treated by J. Richard Vockeroth in unpublished notes or by Thompson in his unpublished but widely distributed "A conspectus of the flower flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) of the Nearctic Region". Five of the 11 species were discovered during the preparation of the Field Guide. Eight of the 11 have DNA barcodes available that support the morphology.

New information

New species treated in this paper include: Anasimyia diffusa Locke, Skevington and Vockeroth (Smooth-legged Swamp Fly), Anasimyia matutina Locke, Skevington and Vockeroth (Small-spotted Swamp Fly), Brachyopa caesariata Moran and Skevington (Plain-winged Sapeater), Brachyopa cummingi Moran and Skevington (Somber Sapeater), Hammerschmidtia sedmani Vockeroth, Moran and Skevington (Pale-bristled Logsitter), Microdon (Microdon) scauros Skevington and Locke (Big-footed Ant Fly), Mixogaster fattigi Locke, Skevington and Greene (Fattig's Ant Fly), Neoascia guttata Skevington and Moran (Spotted Fen Fly), Orthonevra feei Moran and Skevington (Fee's Mucksucker), Psilota klymkoi Locke, Young and Skevington (Black Haireye) and Trichopsomyia litoralis Vockeroth and Young (Coastal Psyllid-killer). Common names follow the "Field Guide to the Flower Flies of Northeastern North America" (Skevington et al. 2019).

Introduction

Flower flies (Syrphidae) are important pollinators, perhaps even outperforming native bees in this critical agricultural ecosystem service (Rader et al. 2016, Skevington et al. 2019). In addition to this important role, most immature Syrphinae species are predators of soft-bodied insects such as aphids and scales, many of which are agricultural pests (Rojo et al. 2003, Tenhumberg and Poehling 1995). Many Eristalinae syrphid larvae, such as Eristalis Latreille 1804 and Eristalinus Rondani 1845, perform critical roles in recycling human and farm animal waste (Pérez-Bañón 2013). Other saprophagous species are found in old growth forests where they specialise in rotholes or under the bark of large trees and are important indicators of habitat health (e.g. Blera fallax Linnaeus 1758; Rotheray et al. 2012). Overall, syrphids have offered important insights into the health of our ecosystems and declines in insect numbers (Hallmann et al. 2017, Sánchez-Bayo and Wyckhuys 2019). A few syrphid larvae are phytophagous (with some Cheilosia Meigen 1822 used in biological control of plants (Grosskopf 2005)), while those of the subfamily Microdontinae are specialised ant predators and even parasitoids (Pérez-Lachaud et al. 2014). In fact, syrphid larvae are more varied and have more ecological roles than any other family of flies, with the possible exception of Phoridae (McAlpine et al. 1981, McAlpine et al. 1987). The family is species-rich, as well as ecologically diverse, with 828 valid species of Nearctic Syrphidae currently recognised (Skevington 2019) and over 6200 species known worldwide (Pape and Evenhuis 2019). Many syrphids are either perfect or imperfect mimics of bees and wasps, adding to both their interest scientifically (e.g. Edmunds and Reader 2014, Gilbert 2005, Penney et al. 2012, Penney et al. 2014) and to confusion by non-specialists who think that all floral visitors are bees. Many ‘bees’ portrayed in advertisements and even in the scientific literature are actually syrphids.

The popularity of Syrphidae, both as research subjects and as the subject of amateur natural history pursuits, has been increasing in recent years and field guides are emerging that capitalise on this interest. The first such guide was targeted on the United Kingdom fauna and, although not comprehensive, provided an excellent entry into the taxonomy and identification of the group (Ball and Morris 2015). The year 2019 has seen the publication of two comprehensive guides to syrphids. The first, by Bot and Van de Meutter (2019), treated all 384 species that are found, or are expected to be found, in The Netherlands and Belgium. The second, by Skevington et al. (2019) (hereafter, the “Field Guide”), treated 413 species found in north-eastern North America. This book includes 18 undescribed species of Syrphidae that are illustrated but not named. This paper names 11 of these 18 new taxa. Seven species are omitted (three Cheilosia, a Neoascia Williston 1887 species, a Palpada Macquart 1834 species and two Xylota Meigen 1822 species). Cheilosia is one of the most diverse Nearctic syrphid genera and includes 119 names (Pape and Evenhuis 2019). Moran reworked the eastern Nearctic species for inclusion in the Field Guide but did not study all related type material. Western Nearctic and Palaearctic species need to be included in a complete revision before we can be absolutely sure that morphospecies included in the field guide are not valid but are currently undiagnosable species. Palpada is not as complicated, but all types previously assigned as synonyms to P. furcata Wiedemann 1819 must be examined to ensure that one does not represent the putative new species. This is complicated by the fact that the putative new Nearctic species is supported largely by DNA data. Until morphological characters can be found to support this new taxon, there is no point in checking type specimens. The Neoascia and Xylota species are straightforward but will be described by Chris Thompson in a planned publication.

New species to be described herein are in the genera Anasimyia Schiner 1864, Brachyopa Meigen 1822, Hammerschmidtia Schummel 1834, Microdon Meigen 1803, Mixogaster Macquart 1842, Neoascia, Orthonevra Macquart 1829, Psilota Kieffer 1906 and Trichopsomyia Williston 1888. Thompson (1991) studied the Nearctic taxa as part of a plan to publish a Conspectus of Nearctic Syrphidae (hereafter, the “Conspectus”). Although never published, this work has been privately distributed and has served as the backbone of many taxonomic publications, including the Field Guide (Skevington et al. 2019). Thompson and Vockeroth studied most types in preparing the Conspectus and it thus provides a clear indication of taxonomic gaps for the family. Six of the species described herein were first recorded in the Conspectus. Five of the 11 new species were discovered during the preparation of the Field Guide.

Materials and methods

Adult specimens were pinned directly after collecting or stored in ethanol and later critical-point dried in the case of Malaise trap samples. Clearing and removal of male genitalia were necessary in order to view internal characters, useful for classification and species delimitation. The genitalia capsule was removed by cutting between tergites 7 and 8 and then cleared by heating in 88% lactic acid overnight. A full materials examined list is provided after each species description. Specimens were borrowed from the following institutions and individuals (collection codes based on Evenhuis (2007) are used in the material examined sections):

ANSP - Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA

CAS - California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco, California, USA

CBG - Centre for Biodiversity Genomics, Guelph, Ontario, Canada

CNC - Canadian National Collection of Insects, Arachnics, and Nematodes, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

DEBU - University of Guelph Insect Collection, Guelph, Ontario, Canada

MCZ - Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts

MEMU - Mississippi State University, Starkville, Mississippi, USA

NBMB - New Brunswick Museum, St. John's, New Brunswick

USNM - National Museum of Natural History, Washington D.C., USA

Photography

Habitus and genitalia photographs for all specimens were taken using a Leica M205-C stereoscope (Leica Microsystems Inc., Concord, Ontario, Canada) using 0.6x (habitus) and 1.6x (genitalia) lenses. Raw images to be used in depth-of-field photomontages were captured using Leica Application Suite (Leica Microsystems 2019) and final images were created using Zerene Stacker (Littlefield 2018). Specimen measurements were taken using the Leica measurement module in Leica Application Suite. Figures are presented alphabetically.

DNA Sequencing

The right hind leg was removed from all recently collected (post 2000) specimens and sent to the University of Guelph Biodiversity Institute of Ontario for sequencing of the 5' end of the Cyctochrome c Oxidase I mitochondrial gene (COI) or Barcoding region, following protocols published in Hajibabaei et al. (2005). DNA extraction and sequencing from older specimens (most) was performed by Scott Kelso at the CNC using a modified version of the same protocol, with custom primers developed for use in Diptera. These custom primers (Table 1) sequence the Barcoding region in three smaller segments to be assembled as a full barcode, allowing fragmented DNA from older specimens and specimens stored in suboptimal conditions to be successfully sequenced. All sequence data are stored on the BOLD website (www.boldsystems.org) in the 'New Species of Syrphidae from Field Guide' (DS-NSSFG) dataset, available at dx.doi.org/10.5883/DS-NSSFG. GenBank Numbers and unique identifiers ('Sample ID') of specimens sequenced are available in Table 2. With material sequenced at the CNC, raw sequence reads were scored using Sequencher 5.4.6 (Gene Codes Corporation 2019) and aligned using Mesquite (Maddison and Maddison 2010).

Terminology

Syrphidae-specific terminology follows Thompson (1999), while all other morphological terminology follows Cumming and Wood (2017). A visual glossary of common terminology used is available in Skevington et al. (2019).

Species Authorship

Authorship of each species is noted in the species description. As the species described below were discovered and described by different people, not all of the authors of this paper contributed equally to each species. In some cases, species discovered by now deceased entomologists are attributed in part to them (depending on how many notes they left on the taxon). In all cases, new data have been brought to bear on the species concepts, including but not limited to genitalic morphology and DNA. Additional authors are added to these species descriptions, based on their relative contributions.

Notes on Identification

All species included here can be identified by using Skevington et al. (2019). Keys are thus not provided.

Diagnosis

Male metatrochanter without tubercle, with fine, yellow pile anteriorly (Fig. 1e); metatibia without spur (Fig. 1d) and tergite 4 with large pair of curved pollinose markings.

Etymology

The word diffusa is Latin, meaning spread out, extended, dispersed. This is the name given to this species by J.R. Vockeroth, presumably with reference to the wide distribution.

Distribution

This species is known from 20 specimens from New Brunswick to British Columbia.

Ecology

Anasimyia diffusa is often collected in the same location as the much more common A. anausis (Walker 1849). They appear to both have a broad distribution and a long flight season, with A. diffusa collected from mid-April to late August. Some specimens have been collected in bogs but it is unclear if it is a bog specialist or not.

Taxon discussion

Differences in the metatrochanter are the easiest way to distinguish A. diffusa from A. anausis. The metatrochanter of A. anausis has short black setuale anteroventrally. In some specimens these setulae appear to be broken off but their insertions into the cuticle give the metatrochanter a rough texture. Anasimyia bilinearis (Williston 1887) can be differentiated from A. diffusa by its mostly dark abdomen with reduced pollinose markings. There is no tubercle on the metatrochanter of A. diffusa as there is in Anasimyia Group 2 males (see Skevington et al. 2019). Females are similar to other Group 1 females (see Skevington et al. 2019) and cannot be distinguished from similar species. Five females of A. diffusa were identified using the barcoding region of COI. These specimens in the paratype series clustered in a neighbour-joining tree with four males that were morphologically identified to A. diffusa. DNA sequences of this species are available in the public BOLD dataset "New Species of Syrphidae from Field Guide - DS-NSSFG" and in GenBank (Table 2). They are genetically most similar to A. anausis but consistently separable with DNA barcodes.

Common Name

The common name given to the species by Skevington et al. (2019) is Smooth-legged Swamp Fly.

Diagnosis

Male metatrochanter with modest tubercle and long, acute apical metatibial spur (Fig. 3d).

Etymology

The word matutina is Latin, meaning of the morning, early. This is the name given to this species by J.R. Vockeroth.

Distribution

Only four specimens are known from Virginia (Chain Bridge, Great Falls and Petersburg) and Washington DC.

Ecology

Rarely found, therefore nothing is known about its habitat association. It is known to fly from mid-May to mid-June.

Taxon discussion

Size and shape of spur on metatrochanter and of metatibial spur separate this from other Anasimyia Group 2 males (see Skevington et al. 2019). Females are unknown, but are likely to be identifiable as Anasimyia Group 2 females (Skevington et al. 2019).

Common Name

The common name given to the species by Skevington et al. (2019) is Small-spotted Swamp Fly.

Diagnosis

Katepisternum usually bare on dorsal half, rarely with 1-2 hairs. Mesonotum yellow in colour. Never with wing spots. Arista pubescent. Abdomen and legs extensively yellow.

Etymology

The name is from the Latin caesariatus, meaning covered with hair, with reference to the pilose arista.

Distribution

This species is found from Nova Scotia to British Columbia, north to Alaska and south to Utah in the west and Maryland in the east.

Ecology

This uncommon species can be found flying from mid-May to late July but may be found as early as the beginning of March in the southwest. Specimens have been collected from Heracleum and Rubus plants and from black spruce bog and Alder-Poplar-Spruce forest habitats.

Taxon discussion

This species is part of the B. punctipennis Curran 1925 complex of five species. Skevington et al. (2019) incorrectly states that the name for this group is the B. perplexa Curran 1922 complex. Brachyopa punctipennis s.s. is restricted to the Western US as are three additional undescribed species in the complex. Like other species in this complex, Brachyopa caesariata is found in the Western US; however it is the only species whose range also extends to the Eastern US. Data for three of the five undescribed species in this complex are available in BOLD. Brachyopa punctipennis s.s. has not yet been sequenced. DNA sequences available for B. caesariata are listed in (Table 2).

Common Name

The common name given to the species by Skevington et al. (2019) is Plain-winged Sapeater.

Description

Size: Body length 5.8 mm; wing length 5.4 mm

Male: Head: Yellow to orange; face concave, covered in white pollen and bare, lower face projecting forwards along the oral margin; gena pale pilose, shiny anteriorly and white pollinose posteriorly; frontal triangle shiny, bare except for white pollinosity and short pale pile narrowly along eye margin; vertex yellow, except ocellar triangle black, white pollinose and pale pilose; occiput white pollinose, pale pilose with some short black setae on dorsal ¼; antenna wholly yellow to orange, scape and pedicel with short, pale pile, pedicel about as long as scape, postpedicel oval, about twice as long as wide, with minute sensory pit on inner surface, arista minutely pubescent; eye bare, very narrowly dichoptic.

Thorax: Mesonotum dull brown, pale pilose, white pollinose except for two medial, bare stripes starting at anterior edge and running about three-fourths the length of mesonotum and four bare vittae, two before transverse suture and two after; scutellum yellow, pale pilose, sparsely white pollinose and without macrosetae; subscutellar fringe absent; postpronotum yellow, pale pilose and white pollinose; postalar callus yellow, pale pilose and white pollinose; pleuron yellow, covered in white pollen; anterior anepisternum, katepimeron and meron bare; posterior anepisternum and anepimeron pale pilose; katepisternum discontinuously pale pilose; metasternum yellow, white pollinose, bare; legs yellow, pale pilose; meso- and metacoxa sparsely white pollinose; metafemur with black setulae along ventral side; wing entirely densely microtrichose; halter yellow; calypter white.

Abdomen: Oval, unicolorous light brown, pale pilose, sparsely white pollinose.

Genitalia: Epandrium subquadrate, longer than wide, narrows slightly dorsally; cercus with laterally compressed, subtriangular sclerotised outer portion covered in long pile and membranous inner portion; surstylus short, with broadly fused, for ⅓ the length of the ventral lobe, dorsal and ventral lobes, dorsal lobe short, rounded apically, ventral lobe large and elongate rectangularly, dorsal lobe densely setose on apex and with dense cluster of long pile on outer surface just prior to apex, ventral lobe with sparse smattering of pile on outer surface; subepandrial sclerite divided with one arm off of each surstylus, joined only where it articulates with hypandrium; ejaculatory apodeme narrow, straight; phallapodeme long and narrow; postgonite hooked ventrally, adjacent to hypandrium; dorsal hypandrium with paired, pointed, long arms projecting from distal end, with triangular tooth near tip; phallus simple tube within hypandrium.

Female: Unknown.

Diagnosis

Arista pubescent but not plumose. Male postpedicel with distinct sensory pit. White pollinose on scutum. Postpronotum and scutellum yellow in colour. Wing hyaline. Katepisternum pilose on dorsal half. Scutellum pale pilose; completely pollinose. Abdomen unicolorous light brown; completely pollinose.

Etymology

This species is named for the collector of the only known specimen. Jeff Cumming works at the Canadian National Collection of Insects, Arachnids and Nematodes where he specialises on Empidoidea systematics.

Distribution

The only known specimen of this species was collected in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Ecology

This extremely rare fly has been collected once in mid-May (14 May 1986).

Taxon discussion

We were unable to sequence this specimen. Morphologically, it appears to be closely related to B. daeckei Johnson 1917. Brachyopa daeckei lacks the distinct sensory pit on the postpedicel that is present in B. cummingi. Additionally, B. daeckei has dark brown instead of pale yellow postpronotum and scutelllum, gold instead of white pollinosity on scutum and a pitch black instead of pale brown abdomen. Genitalia of B. cummingi and B. daeckei are similar, except surstylar lobes of B. daeckei are fused over ½ the width of ventral lobe in comparison to B. cummingi in which they are fused for ⅓ the width.

Common Name

The common name given to the species by Skevington et al. (2019) is Somber Sapeater.

Description

Size: Body length 7.5 to 9.5mm; wing length 6.0 to 7.7 mm

Male: Head: Orange; face with low tubercle, shiny medially, light (not obscuring orange ground colour) white pollinose laterally; gena shiny anteriorly, white pollinose posteriorly, white pilose; frontal triangle shiny, bare except for short white pile narrowly along eye margin; front bare on ventral ⅓, yellow pilose dorsally; vertical triangle short yellow pilose; occiput light white pollinose, white pilose with some short black setae on dorsal ¼; antenna yellow pilose; postpedicel oval, only slightly (1.2) longer than broad; aristal pile long, with longest pili as long as pedicel width; eyes very narrowly dichoptic, separated by width of an ommatidium; area of approximation short, about 5-6 ommatidia long.

Thorax: Dark brownish-orange; postpronotum yellow pilose except for a few black pili medially; mesonotum shiny except light grey pollinose submedial vitta and notopleuron, short black pilose except yellow pilose anteriorly and on notopleuron, with 3 supra-alar and 1-2 postalar black bristles; scutellum shiny, black pilose, with broadly separated apical black bristles and 1-3 subapical black bristles; pleuron sparsely grey pollinose, white pilose except intermixed black pili on posterior anepisternum; anepistemum with 2-3 yellow posterodorsal bristles; katepistemum bare dorsally or with at most a few short pili. Legs: pro- and mesocoxae orange, sparsely white pollinose, white pilose; metacoxa dark brownish-orange, sparsely grey pollinose, yellow pilose, with 1-2 black apicolateral bristles; trochanters orange, pale pilose; profemur orange, shiny, white pilose except black pilose on posterior apical ½; mesofemur orange, black pilose except white pilose on basoventral ½; metafemur brownish-orange, black pilose except narrowly white pilose basally, with black setae on apico-ventral ⅓; pro- and mesotibiae orange, black pilose; metatibia brownish-orange, black pilose, with a few black seta on anterior side; tarsi orange except apical 2 tarsomeres brown, black pilose. Wing: halter orange; calypter white; wing microtrichose, hyaline except apical veins diffusely margined with brown.

Abdomen: Brownish-orange, shiny, extensively white pilose, black pilose apicolaterally on 2nd tergum and on apicomedial ½ of 3rd and 4th terga.

Genitalia: Epandrium triangular, narrowing posteriorly; cercus with laterally compressed, oval sclerotised outer portion covered in long pile and membranous inner portion; surstylus long, fingerlike with rounded apex and with ventral tooth at about half the length, densely setose on outer surface and loosely setose on inner surface; subepandrial sclerite divided with one arm off of each surstylus, broad proximally and joined only where it articulates with hypandrium; ejaculatory apodeme weakly fan-shaped; phallapodeme long and narrow; postgonite small, quadrate; basiphallus claw-like, broad; distiphallus simple tube.

Female: Face concave instead of tuberculate, eyes more broadly dichoptic.

Diagnosis

Always orange with pale anepisternal bristles and a sparsely pilose katepisternum.

Etymology

This species is named for Yale Sedman in recognition of his early work on the male genitalia and classification of brachyopine flower flies.

Distribution

This species is known from New Brunswick to British Columbia, south to Pennsylvania.

Ecology

This uncommon species is known to fly from mid-May to mid-July. They have been found visiting Cornus canadensis, Heracleum, Physocarpus and Prunus virginiana and are known from bogs and mixed woods. Several specimens were collected on a recently fallen aspen log while they were searching for oviposition sites. Larvae of all known species of Hammerschmidtia live in recently fallen aspens.

Taxon discussion

DNA sequences of this species are available from BOLD and GenBank (Table 2). This new species is similar to H. rufa, but can be distinguished by the black anepisternal bristles and katepisternum that is densely pilose.

Common Name

The common name given to the species by Skevington et al. (2019) is Pale-bristled Logsitter.

Microdon (Microdon) scauros Skevington and Locke, sp. n.
