Gymnomyzinae

Placopsidella grandis, from the National Museum of Natural History.


Belongs within: Ephydroidea.

The Gymnomyzinae are a group of shore flies with pectinate aristae and small prescutellar acrostichal setae (Mathis 2010).

Characters (from Mathis 2010): Arista pectinate; reclinate fronto-orbital seta usually inserted slightly anterior to larger, proclinate fronto-orbital seta; median facial area and lower facial margin without setae; facial setae inserted in more or less vertical series, parallel with parafacial setae; prescutellar acrostichal setae small (about one-half to two-thirds length of posterior dorsocentral seta), inserted close together (distance between about one-half that between either prescutellar and posterior dorsocentral seta on the same side), behind or aligned with intra-alar seta.
