Copecrypta sp. (Surinam)

Copecrypta sp. (Surinam)
This is the first of a batch of flies sent to me by Menno Reemer and caught by him in Surinam in 2006. Copecrypta (and the allied genera Deopalpus & Itacuphocera) are some of my favourites. They all have an interesting ant- or beetle-shaped abdomen.

These 2 flies are either Copecrypta or a genus very close to it.
