Ebenia sp. ??? (French Guiana)

Recently I have found quite a few small, black tachinids with a very plumose arista. Some are entirely black and others are a little dusted but they all have the anterior katepisternal bristle directly ventral to the pleural suture, which is a very unusual feature and suggests to me that if they aren’t Ebenia (a genus which also has this feature) then they are closely related to Ebenia.
