Nephrotoma Meigen (Diptera, Tipulidae) from Xinjiang, China

JINLONG REN, DING YANG

Abstract


Only four species of the genus Nephrotoma were previously known to occur in Xinjiang. Here six species are added to the fauna of Xinjiang. Among them Nephrotoma kanasensis sp. nov., is described and illustrated as new, and the following three species are recorded from China for the first time: N. analis (Schummel, 1833), N. lundbecki lundbecki (Nielsen, 1907) and N. tenuipes (Riedel, 1910). A key to the species of Nephrotoma from Xinjiang is presented.
