ABSTRACT
The southern African assassin-fly genus Anasillomos Londt, 1983 is reviewed. A new species, Anasillomosjuergeni sp. n., is described from the Namib desert and represents the second species in the genus. Descriptions/re-descriptions, photographs, and identification keys are provided to aid in the identification. Distribution, occurrence in biodiversity hotspots sensu Conservation International, and seasonal incidence are discussed.

Figure 886540: lateral (#850990)

Mentions: Male (Fig. 4a, b, c): T1–T8 and S1–S8 entire (without modifications); hypopygium dark brown, rotated by 180°, directed posteriorly; epandrium divided medially into two halves, joined proximally; hypandrium well-developed, triangular, distally with short postero-median projection, distinctly separated from epandrium by gonocoxite, not fused to gonocoxite; gonocoxite partially fused to epandrium proximally, gonocoxal apodeme present, short, at most slightly extending hypopygium proximally; gonostylus present, positioned distally on gonocoxite; subepandrial sclerite asetose, ventrally with median, wavy longitudinal ridge, laterally straight (without protuberances), distally simple, straight margin; cerci separate (not fused medially); 1 aedeagal prong, tip pointed, without any protuberance, dorsal aedeagal sheath short, sperm sac entirely free; lateral ejaculatory process present, large triangular sclerite, free (not surrounded by ventral aedeagal sheath); ejaculatory apodeme formed by single vertical plate (two lateral surfaces).
