Diagnosis

Males of Tafana riveti   resemble those of T. straminea   , T. kunturmarqa   sp. nov., T. humahuaca   sp. nov. and T. nevada   sp. nov., by the apophysis at the base of the embolus short, but differ by retrolateral tibial apophysis short and with large base in retrolateral view and visible subtegulum on palp when not expanded ( Fig. 10C–E View Fig ). Females differ from those of other species by the short atrium, triangular hood and lateral lobe curved in the anterior region and sclerotized ( Fig. 10F View Fig ).
