Phormia regina (Meigen) 

Musca regina Meigen, 1826: 58  Phormia regina: Hall, 1948: 161 

Diagnosis. Genal dilation usually dark, with dark setae; head with dark vestiture; posterior margin of hind coxa bare or with weak setae; spiracle with orange lappets. A single widespread species in the Nearctic and Palearctic Regions.

Distribution. A single specimen of Phormia regina  was collected in Bahamas from Eluethera Island, Rainbow Bay on Oct. 16, 1996 by J.R. Wiley ( FSCA). This specimen was collected in a Malaise trap along with one Pollenia pediculata  . J.R. Wiley (pers. comm.) has confirmed that the sample was not contaminated, so both species have evidently been introduced.
