fg-taxon #64

(pictures to follow)

This is another small black & grey-dusted species but with a few quite distictive features: hairy arista; bare eyes; strong facial-ridge bristles between 2/5 and 1/2 of the way up from the vibrissae to the base of the antennae; ocellar triangle is a short/compressed isosceles triangle; small diverging apical scutellars; excavation only reaching half way to the margin of T1+2; an interesting grey dusting pattern – anterior third of T3-5 broken centrally by 3 faint longitudinal median lines. I have a male and female of this taxon.
