Abstract

A new species of Delia Robineau-Desvoidy is described from Europe ( Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Czech Republic) by the name of D. coarctoides. It is very similar to and has been confused with the wheat bulb fly, D. coarctata (Fallen), a well known anthomyiid pest species of cereals and grasses in Europe. A brief overview of the D. coarctata species group and a key to males and females are given.
