Some Argentinian, Bolivian & Costa Rican tachinids 1

A few of the more dramatic specimens from the neotropics a sample kindly donated by Martin Hauser 🙂  Identifications were derrived by comparing ot material in the NHM collections, London.

EDIT (6/8/2011): I have just spotted that Monty Wood has demoted Trichosaundersia Townsend to a synonym of Epalpus – so have amended this article accordingly.
