Checklist of Botanophila north of Mexico

The genus Botanophila in the family Anthomyiidae has had a complicated history. Most of the generic concepts in that family have already been highly modified over time, but the genus Botanophila is among the most. Many of its species were formerly treated as several genera. There remains no revision of Nearctic species now treated under Botanophila since Michelson proposed the modern concept in an unpublished phylogeny and classificational overview of the family. With help from Systema Dipterorum, I've compiled a checklist of the Nearctic Botanophila along with references for each species.
