Abstract

Munburra bulbicornis n.gen and n.sp. (Diptera: Empididae: Empidinae) is described from the Cape York Peninsula, Queensland, Australia. This monotypic genus is distinguished by a large, raised ocellar triangle with enlarged ocelli, and two distinctive male secondary sexual characters, a greatly swollen postpedicel, and a long dorsoapical seta on a narrow unswollen leg I first tarsomere. Although it clearly belongs in the Hilarini, its relationship with other members of the tribe is unclear.
