Occurrence data of Namibimydas and Nothomydas (Diptera: Asiloidea: Mydidae)
Occurrence data of two Mydidae genera from Namibia and South Africa - Namibimydas Hesse, 1972 and Nothomydas Hesse, 1969 - based on a new taxonomic revision published in African Invertebrates in 2012.
The data in this occurrence resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 47 records.
This IPT archives the data and thus serves as the data repository. The data and resource metadata are available for download in the downloads section. The versions table lists other versions of the resource that have been made publicly available and allows tracking changes made to the resource over time.
