fg-taxon-79 (Atacta sp.)

This is another really lovely tachinid of medium size but with everything very rounded. The head is similar to some of the Goniini and even the posterior segments of the abdomen are rounded and whitened.

UPDATE (30/1/2010): After comparing with the material at the NHM in London I think this is a species of Belvosia – possibly B. weidemanni?

EDIT (Monty Wood 26/9/2010): This belongs to the genus Atacta – similar but different to Belvosia.
