Presence of the Asian species Anthomyia illocata
in North America has not been published. No North American species recorded by Griffiths(2)
has a uniform transverse stripe on the mesonotum of the female. Of the species listed in the regional revisions of Ackland (1987, Oriental), Suwa (1987, east palaearctic), and Ackland (2001, Africa) none but A. illocata
has the combination of nearly uniformly broad transverse stripe, two small spots over first dorsocentrals, and short hairs on arista. This species may have been introduced to Florida.
