Musca segmentaria Fabricius, 1805: 292  Hemilucilia segmentaria: Dear, 1985: 127 

Diagnosis. Posterior margin of hind coxa setose along entire width ( Fig. 7View FIGURES 2 – 7. 2); upper facets of male eye not significantly enlarged; ventral surface of costa setulose just to the junction of the subcosta.

Distribution. This species is widespread in South and Central America. Two specimens were identified from Trinidad ( USU) and Dear (1985) also recorded it from there. It has not been found elsewhere in the West Indies. It is notable that Trinidad is close to Venezuela where this species is common and quite distant from most other West Indies islands (except Tobago).
