PATITUCCI, Luciano D. et al. Preliminary study of Caliptratae (Diptera) in Otamendi Strict Nature Reserve, Buenos Aires, Argentina. Rev. Soc. Entomol. Argent. [online]. 2011, vol.70, n.3-4, pp.157-168. ISSN 0373-5680.

A list of species of Calyptratae is firstly disclosed in this work for Otamendi Reserve. This protected area contains a large area housing native species of grasses and woods. We recorded seven families of Calyptratae (Anthomyiidae, Calliphoridae, Fanniidae, Muscidae, Rhinophoridae, Sarcophagidae and Tachinidae) which include 56 species and 33 genera. Anthomyia aurifacies (Albuquerque) (Anthomyiidae), Myospila fluminensis Couri & Lopes (Muscidae) and the genus Thomazomyia (Sarcophagidae) are new records for Argentina. Four species of Fanniidae, 4 species of Muscidae and 3 species of Sarcophagidae are reported from Buenos Aires province for the first time. The richness was higher in the forest (44 species) and Sarcophagidae (20 species) and Muscidae (12 species) exhibited higher species richness than the remaining families. We registered 20% new taxa for the province.
