fg-taxon #45 (Jurinia sp.)

This really is a little beauty and very similar in morphology to taxon #20 (golden dusted thorax, shiny black/red abdomen & distinctive broad, shallow scutellum with a row of scutellar bristles), but this one is much smaller and has a black abdomen with a dark, central wing patch. There are 2 specimens in this taxon, one of which is much smaller than the other (4mm vs. 7mm).

EDIT (Monty Wood 26/9/2010): This is a Jurinia sp.
