Review of Euthera (Diptera: Tachinidae) in North America with the description of a new species
O'Hara, J.E. (2012). Review of Euthera (Diptera: Tachinidae) in North America with the description of a new species, 144(2), 206-215. http://dx.doi.org/10.4039/tce.2012.23
Euthera Loew is a small but cosmopolitan genus of Tachinidae with distinctive smoky black cross bands on the wings. There are three described species in North America, Euthera bicolor Coquillett, Euthera setifacies Brooks, and Euthera tentatrix Loew. A new species from California and New Mexico is described as Euthera woodi sp. nov. in honour of dipterist D. Monty Wood. A key and digital images are provided for the identification of the four species, and the three previously described species are diagnosed. Oebalus mexicana (Sailer) and Nezara viridula (L.) (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) are new host records for E. bicolor and E. tentatrix, respectively. © 2012 Entomological Society of Canada.
