Michelsen, Verner LU (2007) In Zootaxa 1469. p.51-57
Abstract
Two species within the Delia cardui species group were known to have males with the abdominal sternite III bipartite or

very deeply incised, viz., D. bipartita Suwa from Japan and China and D. polaris Griffiths from extreme northern and

high-altitude sites in North America. Two new species with this extraordinary character are described from northern

Europe: D. rimiventris sp. nov. from southern Norway (Vest-Agder; Oppland) and southern Finland (Regio aboensis;

Karelia australis) and D. bipartitoides sp. nov. from northern Sweden (Norrbotten). Further records of the latter species

from Mongolia and Russia (Yakutia) are given. A discussion and redefinition of the Delia cardui species group and a... (More)
