" Pictina fulvipalpis  R. D."

A female of Myopa extricata Collin, 1960  . The right middle leg is missing, but otherwise the specimen is well preserved.

The specimen bears the following labels: (1) "M. / fulvipalpis  / coll. Big." [round, white label]; (2) "Pictina / fulvipalpis  R. D." [light­blue label].

This specimen was determined and labelled by Robineau­Desvoidy and can therefore be interpreted as a syntype of Pictina fulvipalpis Robineau­Desvoidy, 1853: 96  ­97. Since this specimen appears to be the only known syntype of Pictina fulvipalpis  it is herewith designated lectotype and the following label has been added: " Lectotypus / Pictina fulvipalpis  / Robineau­Desvoidy, 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 Pictina fulvipalpis Robineau­Desvoidy, 1853  can now be placed as a senior synonym of Myopa extricata Collin, 1960  [syn. nov.] (see note under Phorosia pellucida  , above, concerning our use of the name extricata Collin, 1960  ).
