Abstract:

The 12 New World species of Leptopsilopa are reviewed, including the following new species (type localities noted parenthetically): L. andiana (Peru. Huánuco: Espensa, [11 km N Huánuco]), L. flavicoxa (Belize. Stann Creek: Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary [16°47'N, 88°30'W]), L. martharum (United States. Texas. Jim Wells: Mathis(7.5 km S; Nueces River; 28°02.2'N, 97°52.2'W; 15 m), and L. placentia (Belize. Stann Creek:Placentia Lagoon, Rum Point; 16°32'N, 88°21'W). Lectotypes are designated for Psilopasimilis Coquillett, Psilopa varipes Coquillett, and Psilopa metallina Becker. The monophyly of Leptopsilopa is established, but only if the Old World species are excluded. The genus is most closely related to a lineage of species currently included in the genus Psilopa (thedupla group, including P. metallina), which is rendered paraphyletic by the recognition of Leptopsilopa as an included, monophyletic lineage. The New World species are arranged into two monophyletic species groups, the atrimana and the similis groups. Of the 12 species now recognized, 10 occur in the neotropics, where other undescribed species will probably be discovered.
