In the recent paper by Bickel and Solórzano Kraemer (2016) six new species of Dolichopodidae in Mexican amber were published without the Zoobank registration number. The taxa were registered before publication but missed the end phase of edition. Here we add the numbers in order to make the new taxa valid according to the ICZN regulations.

Mesorhaga pseudolacrymans Bickel, n. sp.


Amblypsilopus monicae Bickel, n. sp.


Medetera amissa Bickel, n. sp.


Medetera totolapa Bickel, n. sp.


Peloropeodes paleomexicana Bickel, n. sp.


Neoparentia chiapensis Bickel, n. sp.
