status

 

Bibio incrassatus Heer, 1849: 221   .

Described from a single specimen from “k.k. montan. Cabinet” Vienna. The specimen was depicted by Heer (Pl.

XVI Fig. 12 View FIGURE 12 ) but it is difficult to tell what it is. Heer’s figure may suggest the presence of a vein R 2+3 and a vertical crossvein R-M, in which case the species should be placed in the genus Plecia   , possibly as a synonym of Plecia  

morio. On the other hand, if this interpretation of the wing venation is incorrect, it may habitually resemble Bibio  

giganteus. Pongracz (1928: 183) considered Bibio morio   and Bibio incrassatus   as probable synonyms.
