Abstract/Contents:"The diversity of Agromyzidae (Diptera) associated with disjunct xeric grasslands was studied at six south-facing slopes in the southern Yukon Territory, Canada. Agromyzidae was the most diverse of 32 Brachycera at the sites, with 34 species (485 specimens) collected. Eight new species are described: Liriomyza nares sp.nov., Metopomyza adretana sp.nov, Phytoliriomyza depricei sp.nov., Phytoliriomyza depricei sp.nov., Phytoliriomyza triangulata sp.nov., Phytomyza conglomerate sp.nov., Phytomyza dioni sp.nov., Phytomyza klondikensis sp.nov., and Phytomyza takhiniensis sp.nov. Twenty previously described species were indentified and six other unamed species were represented by females only. Fourteen of the 20 previously described species are recorded from the Yukon for the first time; ecological and systematic notes are given for each species. Although the vegetation of the sample sites was often similar, there were pronounced differences in the species assemblage of Agromyzidae collected at each site. Thirteen of the previously known species are widespread in the Nearctic region (including Holarctic species), six species are restricted to the western Nearctic, and one species is known from the Palaearctic and western Nearctic. Several major range extensions are noted."
