Abstract: A commented and updated checklist of the hoverflies from the Mascarene island of Réunion, France, is presented. A total of 22 species are listed. New data on eight species are provided, two of them new to Réunion: Syritta austeni Bezzi, 1915 and Eristalinus madagascariensis (Hervé-Bazin, 1914). Réunion has 14 species shared with Madagascar and 10 with Mauritius. The present study contributes to better understand the biodiversity of this part of the world.
Sponsor: Neus Estela’s stay on Réunion was thanks to the ERASMUS scholarship program (University of Alicante) and was funded by the Spanish ‘Ministerio de Educación y Ciencia’.
