Lonsdale, O. (2013). Japanagromyza Sasakawa (Diptera: Agromyzidae) of Africa. Zootaxa, [online] 3709(5), 445-460. http://dx.doi.org/10.11646/zootaxa.3709.5.3


The African Japanagromyza Sasakawa are revised, including a key and genitalic illustrations, and the limits of the genus are discussed. Nine species are recognized, which include four previously described species and four newly described species: J. crinicolis spec. nov.; J. dolobrata spec. nov.; J. laureata spec. nov.; J. nesiota spec. nov. The ninth species ("fe-male 1") is described but not formally named as it is known only from females. Japanagromyza salicifolii is known from Palaearctic Africa on Populus and Salix. The remaining eight species are known from the Afrotropical Region; of these, only Japanagromyza parvula Spencer has a known host association [Fabaceae - Crotalaria].
