" Myopella puncticeps  R. D."

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

The specimen bears the following labels: (1) "M. / puncticeps  / & / coll. Big." [round, white label]; (2) " TYPE " [red writing]; (3) " Myopella  / puncticeps  R. D." [light­blue label].

This specimen was determined and labelled by Robineau­Desvoidy and is evidently a syntype of Myopella puncticeps Robineau­Desvoidy, 1853: 99  ­100. Since this specimen appears to be the only known syntype of Myopella puncticeps  it is herewith designated lectotype and the following label has been added: " Lectotypus / Myopella puncticeps  / Robineau­Desvoidy, 1853 / des. Stuke & Clements, 2005 " [red label, printed].

Chvála & Smith (1988) gave the name as Myopella punctipes Robineau­Desvoidy, 1853  , presumably in error. However, their proposed synonymy of this taxon with Myopa buccata (Linnaeus, 1758)  is supported.
