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 896320: ventral (#851021)

Mentions: Female (Fig. 9a, b, c): T7 and S7 without modifications, ovipositor comprised of 8th and following segments, T6–8 apubescent, setation directed anteriorly on T6–7 and erect on T8; T8 anteriorly with internal rectangular apodeme (entirely fused to T), S8 plate-like, hypogynial valves extending; T9 and T10 entirely fused, sclerites not distinguishable, T10 divided into two heavily sclerotized acanthophorite plates, with 7, white acanthophorite spurs per plate; 3 spermathecae, all equally large, reaching anterior end of segment 6; common spermathecal duct short, not extending beyond tip of furca, individual spermathecal ducts long; ejection apparatus absent; spermathecal reservoirs formed by more or less expanded and coiled ducts, weakly sclerotized; furca (S9) formed by single, inverted V-shaped sclerite, median sclerite (at posterior tip) absent, anterior furcal apodeme absent.
