Nerioidea

Latheticomyia tricolor, from Buck & McAlpine (2010).


Belongs within: Schizophora.
Contains: Taeniapterinae.

The Nerioidea are a clade of flies united by features of the genitalia, including production of the end of the female abdomen into a sclerotised oviscape (Buck & McAlpine 2010).

Synapomorphies (from Buck & McAlpine 2010): Epandrium elongated with apical surstyli widely separated from articulation point of hypandrium near epandrial base; phallus borne on elongate cone formed by posterior extension of hypandrial bridge dorsally and elongate, rodlike pregonites; postgonites shifted anteriorly, articulated to phallapodeme basal of phallus; female segment 7 modified as sclerotised oviscape.
