status

 

Coenosia distitarsalis ( Emden, 1940: 167) 

Holotype male seen; mid right femur a little damaged at middle.

Diagnosis. General colour brown with light grey pollinosity contrasting with the yellow legs; arista shorthaired, with fringe of the dorsal side broader; frons narrowing towards vertex; ocellar setae long; palpus yellow; scutellum with four strong setae; scutum with three brown vittae separated by two grey vittae along dorsocentral rows, the median brown vitta extending to apex of scutellum; abdomen with median brown vittae and paired spots; lower calypter about 2.5 times the length of the upper one, distinctly projecting beyond it; mid and hind coxa and hind trochanter on posterior surface with numerous erect fine hairs; hind tibia with one anterior, one anterodorsal and one posterdorsal setae, all almost of the same size, the posterodorsal one inserted a little basad of the anterodorsal.

Notes. Included in the vittata  group. The paratype female was also seen. It is very different from the holotype male and is in bad condition; Emden (1940: 168–169) listed the differences and commented that it is “greasy and in rather poor condition”. No male paratypes.
