Archytas aurifrons, Townsend (pe-taxon #24)

This is another tachinine tachinid with a slightly variable abdomenal patternation but there and many fundamental similarities between the 2 featured specimens – taking into consideration that one is male and the other is female. This taxon is very similar to fg-taxon #80.

EDIT (6/8/2011): After a visit to the BMNH I believe this to be Archytas aurifrons, Townsend.

Det: Monty Wood, 2010.
