" Myopella florea  R. D."

A female of Myopa buccata (Linnaeus, 1758)  . The specimen is well preserved.

The specimen bears the following labels: (1) "M. / florea  / coll. Big." [round, white label]; (2) " Myopella  / florea  R. D." [light­blue label]; (3) " Syntype " [printed].

This specimen was determined and labelled by Robineau­Desvoidy and is evidently a syntype of Myopella florea Robineau­Desvoidy, 1853: 100  ­101. Since this specimen appears to be the only known syntype of Myopella florea  it is herewith designated lectotype and the following label has been added: " Lectotypus / Myopella florea  / Robineau­ Desvoidy, 1853 / des. Stuke & Clements, 2005 " [red label, printed].

Chvála & Smith (1988) interpreted this species as a "doubtful species of Myopa  ." However, on the basis of the present specimen Myopella florea Robineau­Desvoidy, 1853  can now be placed as a junior synonym of Myopa buccata (Linnaeus, 1758)  [syn. nov.].
