Sciomyzidae: Sepedon

Vikhrev and Yanbulat propose that all Nearctic Sepedon(1) described after 1920 be considered synonyms of older species. That means

* Sepedon americana Steyskal, 1951 = S. spinipes Fabricius
* Sepedon gracilicornis Orth, 1986 = S. tenuicornis Cresson, 1920
* Sepedon neili Steyskal, 1951 = S. pusilla Loew, 1859
* Sepedon floridensis Steyskal, 1951 = S. fuscipennis Loew, 1859
