Abstract: A new species of flower fly (Diptera: Syrphidae) is described, Paragus caligneus sp. nov. A full description with images is given, as well as a species key for the subgenus Afroparagus Vujić & Radenković, 2008 and a modification of the identification key for Paragus subgenera. Molecular sequences from mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) and nuclear ribosomal 28S rRNA genes were analyzed to evaluate the monophyly of Afroparagus. All four Paragus subgenera were recovered as monophyletic, although support values for Afroparagus were very low.
Key words: Diptera, Syrphidae, flower flies, Afroparagus, new species, COI, 28S, Central African Republic, Afrotropical Region
