New species and a new key to Oriental Puliciphora (Diptera: Phoridae) R. H. L. DISNEY Puliciphora destituta sp. n. from Java, P. fosteri sp. n. from Sabah, P. sumatrae sp. n. from Su- matra are described. P. pallicauda Schmitz is synonymised with P. beckeri Meijere. A revised key to the females of the Oriental Region is provided. R. H. L. Disney, University Department of Zoology, Downing Street, Cambridge, CB2 3EJ, England. E-mail: rhld2@hermes.cam.ac.uk An opportunity to examine critical material in the Museum Koenig (Bonn) and a new species collect- ed in Sabah, by my colleagues Martin Ellwood and William Foster, have prompted this paper. Three new species are described, a new synonym is pro- posed and a revised key for all the females of the Oriental species of Puliciphora is presented. The boundary between the Oriental and Australasian Regions is a subject of dispute. I am now treating Weber's Line as the boundary. This is not only consistent with the recent monograph by Ooster- broek (1998) but is also the preferred boundary in terms of our current knowledge of the Phoridae of the two regions (Disney 1999).
