Biology and notes. Palpada meigenii  has been confused many times with Eristalis distinguendus  , currently recognized as Palpada distinguenda ( Wiedemann, 1830)  . In fact, Porter in different papers (1921, 1923, 1924) recorded P. distinguenda  from Chile and Etcheverry (1963) included it in his catalog. However, Lagrange (1990b) excludes P. distinguenda  from Chile and mentions that it was confused with P. meigenii  . Porter (1921) recorded P. meigenii  visiting flowers of Aristolochia chilensis Bridges ex Lindl  based on specimens collected by professor Stuardo in La Serena. Neira et al. (1997) recorded it visiting flowers of R. iaedus  . It has also been observed visiting Raphanus raphanistrum  L. (Ricardo Huenuanca, CSP record), Tagetes patula  L. (Tabatha Carrera, CSP record) and Verbena litoralis Kunth  (Orlando Montes, CSP record).

Conservation status. LC; EOO = 231,068 km 2; AOO = 116 km 2, 23 subpopulations and 26 localities.
