Abstract

Malaysian and Singapore calliphorid flies (118 species) are reviewed. List of new localities, distributions and ecological data are also recorded. Five new species are described and illustrated: Onesia indersinghi, new species, Phumosia flavipennis, new species, Booponus malayana, new species, Verticia chani, new species, and Borbororhinia nigridorsum, new species. Seventeen species are recorded for the first time from the area of Malaysia and Singapore. Keys are provided for identifications of 114 species recorded from the area, excluding four nominal taxa in need of revision: Phumosia emimelania (Rondani, 1875), Rhyncomya indica (Rondani, 1875), Isomyia confixa (Walker, 1856) and I. mallochi James, 1977 (= Strongyloneura micans Malloch, 1928).
