Zhang K, Yang D, Ren D. New short-horned flies (Diptera: Eremochaetidae) from the Early Cretaceous of China. Zootaxa. 2014;3760479-86.
Eremochaetidae is a rare family found from the Late Jurassic to the Early Cretaceous. So far, only 8 genera with 12 species have been recorded. Herein, we describe a new species, Dissup clausus sp. nov. , and the first male of Eremomukha (E. ) tsokotukha Mostovski, 1996, from the Yixian Formation, the Early Cretaceous of Northeastern China. Additionally, E. (E. ) insidiosa Mostovski, 1996 is considered as a new synonym of E. (E. ) tsokotukha. An updated list of all known Eremochaetidae is presented.
