Abstract : The tabanid (Diptera) genus Stypommisa Enderlein is redefined and 28 species are included. Of these 26 are keyed, the remaining 2 omitted for lack of fresh material. Twenty names associated with the genus at various times are considered synonyms, nomina nuda or belonging in other genera. Seven new species are described and figured: S. anoriensis, NW Colombia; S. apicalis, E Peru, E Bolivia, W Brazil; S. aripuana, Mato Grosso, Brazil; S. changena, mountains of W Panama and E Costa Rica; S. kroeberi, E Peru, E Bolivia; S. spilota, E Peru; and S. xanthicornis, Santa Catarina, Brazil. Available material of the described species is discussed and most species are figured.
