INTRODUCTION

A catalog of the type specimens of Stratiomyidae, Tabanidae, Asilidae s. l. (including Leptogastridae), and Syrphidae, housed in the Entomological Division of this Museum is presented. They correspond to 3 + 59 + 24 + 20 names. In an appendix 12 paratypes of 6 species of Tabanidae, housed in the Administración Nacional de Laboratorios e Institutos de Salud "Dr. Carlos G. Malbrán" (ANLIS), Departamento Vectores, Buenos Aires, are recorded.
The species of Stratiomyidae listed were described by Jean Brèthes (1922) and Everard E. Blanchard (1938), whose collections were deposited long ago in this Museum; most of the species of Tabanidae listed were described by Jean Brèthes (1911), and several others by Sixto Coscarón and collaborators (1961/1993); most of the species of Asilidae listed were described by Enrique Lynch Arribálzaga (1880/1883), and a few by Emilio Gemignani (1930/1931) and Gerardo Lamas (1973), and those of Syrphidae by Félix Lynch Arribálzaga (1891/1892) and Jean Brèthes (1905/1920).
Specific and subspecific names, grouped by families, are alphabetically filed in single series, followed by the generic ones, in their original spellings. An account of the types actually here housed is given, with descriptions of all the labels. When no types were formally designated, and the amount of specimens examinated was not mentioned, it is assumed that there was a series of syntypes (recommendation 73F of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, 1999), eventually 'single syntypes'. In geographical mentions, if the country is not stated, Argentina is meant.
For the taxionomic and nomenclatural updating, the catalogs of James (1973) for the Stratiomyidae, those of Fairchild (1971) and Coscarón & Papavero (2009) for the Tabanidae, those of Martin & Papavero (1970) and Lamas (1973b) for the Asilidae, and that of Thompson, Vockeroth & Sedman (1976) for the Syrphidae are here followed.
Some types deemed to be housed in the Museum were not found, but in order to assist future research, they are recorded in separate lists. Some specimens labeled as types are not acceptable, or very hardly acceptable as conforming a type series, but also in order to assist in future research, they are included in further lists.
Barretto & Duret deposited in the Museum in 1955 a series of specimens of Tabanidae, labeled as types, planning to publish the descriptions of fourteen new species, along with the designations of several lectotypes, but owing to the death of Barretto, nothing was published (Duret, personal communication XII.1997); I accept their rotulation as Holotypes and Allotypes of specimens identified by them; once more in order to assist future research, they are filed in a separate list. In the meantime Duret also passed (as late as 2007, at 94 years).
In his descriptions, Coscarón included very often characters of the female genitalia, dissecting the last abdominal segments, but only seldom the corresponding slides were found, neither in this Museum nor in ANLIS, where Coscarón stayed many years as an active entomologist.
All the type specimens, and also those which were intended as types, but were not published, bear a small reverted label referred to the data base of the Museum, as "MACN-En 0000"; specimen information is currently managed with the application Aurora (Rodríguez 2007-2011). Several specimens bear a small, red framed label, with a number entered in the register book of the Entomology Division of the Museum; numbers under 10000 refer to the old general register book of the Museum.
Abbreviations used: allot., allotypus, allotype; coll., collection; det., determinavit; handwr., handwritten; holot., holotypus, holotype; lectot., lectotypus, lectotype; leg., legit, legint; paralect., paralectotypus(i), paralectotype(s); parat., paratypus(i), paratype(s); print., printed; prov., province; spec., specimen(s); subsp., subspecies; synt., syntypus(i), syntype(s); var., varietas, variety.
