Abstract

The fauna of predaceous and parasitoid flies of Dominica appears to be relatively poorly developed, as represented by the Asilidae (4 species), Bombyliidae (5), Conopidae (1), and Pipunculidae (9). One species of Asilidae (Cerotainia melanosoma) and 2 species of Pipunculidae (Tomosvaryella spangleri and Metadorylas dominicensis) are described as new. The females of Efferia nigrimystaceus (Macquart) and Tomosvaryella tuberculata Hardy are described for the first time. Keys to the Pipunculidae and to the Cerotainia known or likely to occur in the West Indies are included. /// La fauna de moscas predatoras y parasitoides de Dominica, relativamente parecen estar pobremente desarrolladas, basado en su representación por Asílidas (4 especies), Bombílidas (5), Conópidas (1), y Pipuncúlidas (9).
