Abstract

Panops (Diptera: Acroceridae: Panopinae) is a distinctive genus of "spider fly" previously known from eight species occurring in Australia, and one species from Indonesia. Herein, another species is described, Panops infrequens sp. nov., currently known from one female specimen collected near Seal Bay on Kangaroo Island (South Australia) in 2008. This is the first record of Panops from Kangaroo Island and the tenth species of the genus to be described. The biology of this species is unknown, however, extant members of Panops are thought to be endoparasitoids of Mygalomorphae.
