© Insect Systematics & Evolution (Group 6) A new genus and species of trichobiine bat flies (Diptera: Hippoboscoidea: Streblidae) from Costa Rica CARL W. DICK and RUPERT L. WENZEL Dick, C.W. & Wenzel, R.L.: A new genus and species of trichobiine bat flies (Diptera: Hippoboscoidea: Streblidae) from Costa Rica. Insect Syst. Evol. 37: 433-442. Copenhagen, December, 2006. ISSN 1399-560X. A new genus and species of parasitic bat fly, Megistapophysis mordax gen. n., sp. n., is diag- nosed and described within the subfamily Trichobiinae (Diptera: Hippoboscoidea: Streblidae). Illustrations of the wing, habitus, and male genitalia are provided. The new genus has affini- ties to species of Megistopoda Macquart, 1852, Neotrichobius Wenzel & Aitken, 1966, Paratrichobius Costa Lima, 1921, and the Trichobius phyllostomae group of species. Morphological affinities of related taxa to the new genus are discussed, and information regarding ecology and host associations is presented. The new genus is known exclusively from Costa Rican Sturnira mordax (Goodwin, 1938) (Chiroptera: Phyllostomidae: Stenodermatinae). C. W. Dick, and R. L.
