Abstract

The known species of the genus Cairnsimyia, all of which occur in Australia and New Guinea (including Papua and West Irian), are described and a key is given for their identification. Six of the nine species are described as new. The larva of one species is also described. The family Rhinotoridae is reduced to a tribe of the family Heleomyzidae.
