OLAFSSON, E. Taxonomic revision of western Palaearctic species of the genus Scatella R.-D. and Lamproscatella Hendel, and studies on their phylogenetic position within the subfamily Ephydrinae (Diptera, Ephydrinae). 1991. 100 pp. SEK 160

The validity of Scatella thermarum from hot springs in Iceland is surveyed. To delimit the genus, representatives from all European genera of the subfamily Ephydrinae were included. The results are also presented in cladograms. 12 genera were found to be valid; 13 western Palaearctic species are regognized in Scatella. It is divided into 3 species-groups.
