dc.description.abstract "The present paper contains the result of the study of some prosimuliine black flies collected by the authors in Chile. The pupa of Cnesiamima atroparva Edwards is described and illustrated for the first time. The pupa of Cnesiamima was found to share derived (synapomorphic) characters with the pupa of Paraustrosimulium; this, together with the existence of synapomorphic structures in the genitalia of the male of the two genera, suggests that both have a common Recent ancestor not shared by any other known black fly genus. New locality data and observations on the morphology of other genera and species are also given"--P. [1]. en_US
