Abstract: Identification keys are essential to properly recognize taxa, and a photographic key not only addresses that issue but can also attract the interest of the general public if designed correctly. Syrphidae is one of the largest families of Diptera, and the Brazilian Amazon holds more taxon records from this family than currently reported. The aim of the current study was to provide an updated photographic identification key, of easy use and access, to the genera of Syrphidae (Diptera) from the Brazilian Amazon r… Show more

“…There was a misidentification of a specimen of Ocyptamus prenes (Curran, 1930a) (INPA-DIP0000246) in the works of Miranda (2017b) and Mengual et al (2018). The specimen is actually a representative of N. cecrops (which still makes it a new record for the state of Amazonas but also makes it a new record for Brazil as well).…”

“…See Reemer and Ståhls (2013a) for a key to genera of Microdontinae of the world or Reemer (2014) for a key to the Neotropical genera. This genus is also included in the key to genera of Syrphidae of the Brazilian Amazon by Miranda (2017).…”

“…Cepa Thompson & Vockeroth, 1999 (Eristalinae: Merodontini) is an endemic Neotropical genus of small and robust flies of around 6 mm in length, with a distinctly metallic coloration and punctuated body pattern, concave face, a not greatly pronounced frontal prominence (see Figure 2 in Thompson 2007), with an elongated basoflagellomere that is more than twice as long as the scape and pedicel together, a short scape and the vein M 1 directed towards the apex of the wing (Thompson 1999;2007;Thompson et al 2010;Miranda 2017). Cepa is very rare in collections, with nine known specimens belonging to four described species, exclusively known from female specimens: Cepa alex Thompson, 1999 (Brazil and Paraguay); Cepa apeca Thompson, 2007 (Costa Rica); Cepa margarita Thompson, 1999 (Brazil) and Cepa simonettii Barahona-Segovia, 2019 (Chile) (Thompson 2007;Barahona-Segovia and Barceló 2019).…”

“…All collected specimens were brought to the Entomology Laboratory of Universidad de la Amazonía, where the specimen of C. apeca was sorted, sexed, and identified to genus level using the keys proposed by Thompson (2007), Thompson et al (2010), andMiranda (2017). The species was identified with the keys of Thompson (2007) and Barahona-Segovia and Barceló (2019).…”
