status

 

Coenosia mgahingana ( Emden, 1940: 210) 

Holotype male seen; mid left and hind right leg missing; Emden (l.c.) wrote: “the specimen is somewhat teneral, and the interfrontalia and jowls are somewhat shrunk”.

Diagnosis. General colour brown with grey pollinosity; scutum brown, grey pollinose on postpronotum and notopleuron; postpedicel broad and long; face silver pollinose; palpus brown; fore leg brown with grey pollinosity; mid and hind legs brown, except the basal half of femora yellow; arista short-haired; scutellum with both pairs of setae long, and with setulae on disc; anterior katepisternal long; lower calypter about twice as long as upper one; haltere yellow; fore tibia with one median seta; hind tibia with one short and one long anterodorsal setae.

Notes. The species keys out as an isolated species in the group key, where the high insertion of the antenna (“antenna inserted at dorsal quarter of eyes”) is one of the characters to help with its recognition. Known only from the holotype male.
