A new species of Sarcofahrtiopsis (Insecta, Diptera, Sarcophagidae) from mangrove forests in the Brazilian Amazon, with a key to species identification

Abstract: A new species of Sarcofahrtiopsis Hall, 1933, S. terezinhae sp. nov., is described based on male specimens collected in traps baited with rotting crabs in a mangrove forest in the state of Pará, eastern Brazilian Amazon. This species differs from congeneric species in having vesica with a row of toe-like projections. We provide a key to the species of the genus.

“…Sarcofahrtiopsis Hall comprises 16 species of flesh flies distributed predominately in Antillean Islands, Central America and northern areas of South America. Three species are known to extend outside this distribution: S. paterna Dodge in Cuba, Jamaica, and Puerto Rico, but also recorded in Florida (USA); S. farri Dodge, reaching Texas (USA); and S. cuneata (Townsend), which extends from Central America and the Antillean Islands to Rio de Janeiro (Pape, 1996;Pape & Méndez, 2004;Carvalho-Filho et al, 2017). Lopes (1983Lopes ( , 1990, in his tribal classification of the Sarcophaginae, included the genus Sarcofahrthiopsis as part of the tribe Sarothromyiini, with Bahamiola Dodge, Nephochaetopteryx Townsend, Rettenmeyerina Dodge and Tricharaea Thomson.…”

“…Flesh flies are found on all continents and in a wide range of terrestrial environments, from deserts to various types of forests (Shewell 1987). While some species can be found in several different habitats, others are restricted to a few specific locations (Carvalho-Filho et al 2017, Camargo et al 2018. Several Sarcophagidae species prefer open and sunny environments, such as pastures and forest clearings, and some of them have successfully colonized urban areas (Mulieri et al 2011, Vasconcelos et al 2014.…”
