A new species of flower fly (Diptera: Syrphidae) is described, Paragus caligneus sp. nov. A full description with images is given, as well as a species key for the subgenus Afroparagus Vujić & Radenković, 2008 and a modification of the identification key for Paragus subgenera. Molecular sequences from mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) and nuclear ribosomal 28S rRNA genes were analyzed to evaluate the monophyly of Afroparagus. All four Paragus subgenera were recovered as monophyletic, although support values for Afroparagus were very low.
