Abstract

Anthomyzidae from Japan are revised and keyed, and additional information on anthomyzid fauna of adjacent areas is provided. Nine species in four genera are recognized: five of the species, Amygdalops nigrinotum, Anthomyza drachma, An. flavosterna, An. trifurca and Ischnomyia triarmigera, are described as new to science, and the other four, An. bellatrix Roháček, An. elbergi Andersson, An. macra Czerny and Stiphrosoma fissum Roháček, are newly recorded from Japan. The genus Ischnomyia Loew is new to the Old World, and the female Anthomyza bellatrix is described for the first time.
