Liriomyza langei

Liriomyza langei Frick, 1951

This species was initially described from North America. Later it was synonymized with Liriomyza huidobrensis by Spencer, 1973 due to the lack of morphological differences.
Recently langei was resurrected by Scheffer and Lewis, 2001 because of molecular evidence. Up to now identification is only possible by DNA sequencing or PCR-RFLP (polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism, see Scheffer et al., 2001).
However, morphological and ecological differences might be found in the future.

At present, a taxonomic description is, therefore, not possible.

At present only confirmed from North America (Scheffer, 2000, Scheffer and Lewis, 2001, Scheffer et al., 2001).
