Abstract

Three new species of Sarcophaga Meigen, 1826 are described from Timor (Indonesia), viz., Sarcophaga (Sarcorohdendorfia) ikat sp.n., S. (S.) uncus sp.n., and S. (Lioproctia) serratocudo sp.n. The nominal taxon Myophora peronii Robineau-Desvoidy, 1830, with the type locality Timor and previously considered a nomen dubium, is revised and proposed as a senior synonym of Sarcophaga tibialis Macquart, 1851, syn.n. Prevailing usage is maintained through reversed priority: Myophora peronii qualifies as a nomen oblitum, while Sarcophaga tibialis is shown to qualify as a nomen protectum. The delimitation of several Sarcophaga subgenera, Johnstonimyia Lopes, 1959, Sarcorohdendorfia Baranov, 1938, Seniorwhitea Rohdendorf, 1937, and Lioproctia Enderlein, 1928, is briefly discussed and three species are transferred from S. (Johnstonimyia) to S. (Sarcorohdendorfia): S. (Sarcorohdendorfia) gorokaensis Sugiyama, Shinonaga and Kano, 1988; S. (Sarcorohdendorfia) hugoi Pape, 1996; and S. (Sarcorohdendorfia) vanuatu Pape, 1991. The apparently convergent evolution of golden abdominal coloration in several species of Sarcophaga on Timor is discussed.
