The taxonomic status of the genus Diogmites has been the subject of controversy for many years, but it is now recognized as a valid genus, separable from Deromyia (with which it has been synonymized by many workers) by a number of characters. Diogmites is represented in eastern United States by 12 species: basalts (Walker), neoternatus (Bromley), ternatus Loew, discolor Loew, missouriensis Bromley, properans Bromley, platypterus Loew, misellus Loew, salutans Bromley, crudelis Bromley, esuriens Bromley, and rubrodorsatus, a new species described in this paper. This paper contains descriptions of these 12 species, and notes on their occurrence in eastern United States.
