Abstract

Die Untersuchung der Schwebfliegenfauna von Zypern führte zur Entdeckung einer neuen Art, Pelecocera hederae van Eck spec. nov. In der vorliegenden Studie wird die neue Art vollständig beschrieben und alle anderen paläarktischen Pelecocera-Arten kommentiert. Als Ergebnis der vorliegenden Studie wird ein überarbeiteter Bestimmungsschlüssel vorgestellt. Darüber hinaus führten wir eine DNA-Barcoding-Analyse für die paläarktischen Pelecocera-Arten durch, einschließlich neuer DNA-Daten und aller öffentlich zugänglichen Pelecocera-Sequenzen. Das DNA-Barcoding unterstützt die neue Art Pelecocera hederae van Eck spec. nov. sowie die meisten paläarktischen Arten dieser Gattung, mit Ausnahme von zwei Taxapaaren: Pelecocera (Chamaesyrphus) japonica (Shiraki, 1956) und Pelecocera (Chamaesyrphus) lusitanica (Mik, 1898), und Pelecocera (Chamaesyrphus) pruinosomaculata Strobl, 1906 und Pelecocera (Chamaesyrphus) scaevoides (Fallén, 1817).
