fg-taxon #57 (poss. Deopalpus sp.)

An interesting taxon with bare eyes, bare arista, hairy r4+5 and a hugely concave post-angular vein with a quite large appendix. Also has other distinctive features, such as a hairy parafacial, humeral-callus triangle, projecting mouth edge and quite a shiny black ground colour.

EDIT (Monty Wood 26/9/2010): This is most likely a Deopalpus sp. but it needs more investigation.
