The large muscid genus Atherigona Rondani (Diptera) includes over 230 species, most of which are found in the tropical and subtropical regions of the Old World (Pont and Magpayo 1995). The group is divided into two subgenera: Acritochaeta Grimshaw, which contains mostly saprophagous taxa, and Atherigona Rondani, whose phytophagous larvae are shoot-flies that feed on a variety of wild and cultivated grasses (Poaceae) (Pont and Magpayo 1995).
