A checklist of species of the family Dolichopodidae (Diptera) of the World arranged by alphabetic list of generic names
by Igor Grichanov**
First published: 31 March 2003; Last updated: 15 October 2018
FORMAT OF THE LIST

The list of generic names provided before the main check list shows the number of valid species for valid genera including fossil species and the number of fossil species separately (if present). It is arranged alphabetically for the valid genera; each genus is followed by the list of valid subgenera, available and unavailable synonyms and homonyms (if present) arranged chronologically and preceded with the equality sign. All generic names in that list are provided with hyperlinks to corresponding species lists in the main check list preceded with a generic name having additional information. For each entry, nomenclatural details are given, including authorship, date, place of publication (in short) and page. For the genus-group names, these details also include the genus or subgenus status of the name (between the name and author in square brackets), association of a genus with a subfamily or association of a subgenus with a genus (in parenthesis), then (after asterisk) type species and method for designation. Invalid (after double slash) or valid (after asterisk) synonymization is mentioned for a name (if present) accompanied with a reference. Plus in parenthesis (+) is placed between the name and author for extinct taxa. For the species-group names, these details also include (between double asterisk and single asterisk) type status and number (HT for holotype, PT for paratypes, LT for lectotype, PLT for paralectotypes, NT for neotype and ST for syntype), sex of the holotype (M for male and F for female) and depository (if known), type locality and species distribution. These details are provided for each species in its original combination only. Depository abbreviations follow Neal L. Evenhuis (2014). The distribution list provided for each valid species in its original combination is based on data from the most recent catalogs and revisions, being sometimes incomplete. Secondary species combinations contain only authorship, year (in parenthesis), original genus of species description (in square brackets) and first reference for a new combination (in parenthesis). Each entry for valid species combinations is ended with the asterisk (*). Each invalid species combination is ended with a present generic position of a species (after asterisk). Some incorrect Latin spellings (from catalogs mainly) and errors are also included in the main check list (in square brackets). Entries with incorrect spellings are not ended with the asterisk. It is worth noting that all non-Latin words (authors, journal titles etc.) are here Latinized in order to escape problems with character coding. So, superscripts and subscripts are here omitted, and non-Latin letters from French, Slav, Turkish and other languages are changed into the closest Latin letters.
