Bellis G.A., Dyce A., Gopurenko D., Yanase T., Garros C., Labuschagne K., Mitchell A.. 2014. Zootaxa (3768:n°4) : p. 401-427.

The monophyly of the Imicola complex, a natural species complex within subgenus C. subgen. Avaritia Fox of the biting midge genus Culicoides Latreille, is supported using morphological and molecular analyses. A diagnosis for the group along with comparative redescriptions of the male and female of the species represented in Australasia, C. brevitarsis Ki-effer and C. nudipalpis Delfinado and a description of C. asiatica Bellis sp. nov., are presented together with keys for their specific determination and molecular support for their status.
