Limonia (Nealexandriaria)
Dicranomyia (Nealexandriaria)


Alexander, C.P. 1967. New or little-known Tipulidae from eastern Asia (Diptera). LIX. Philippine Journal of Science 95: 107.


The species of Nealexandriaria are grouped on the wing venation that shows the absence of the discal cell and a single medial vein attaining the wing margin. This genus is listed as a subgenus of Dicranomyia by Oosterbroek (2005) but is elevated to generic level here based on the venation of adult fly.
