fg-taxon #43 (Pennapoda sp.)

taxon #43

This is a typical French Guianan phasiine tachinid – chocolate brown body with some orange markings with a bold brown wing costa. This species has an interesting little bristle-comb on the hind tibia and the calyptrae are half black on the posterior edge.

EDIT (Monty Wood 26/9/2010): These small phasiines are usually Pennapoda – part of the tribe Trichopodiini.
