Genus Laphria Meigen 

Laphria Meigen, 1803: 270  . Type species: Asilus gibbosus Linnaeus, 1758  .

Parafacial hair not different from surrounding hairs and bristles. Apex of gonocoxite not separated ( Lehr, 1989). Medium to large bumble bee like flies with long yellow/red hair on thorax and abdomen. The mesal process of the gonopod is complex with dorsal thorns. L. hakiensis  , L. mitsukurri  and L. rufa  are distinctly similar in regards to internal male genitalia, and externally different in regards to size and color. Lehr notes (1989: 131) that, “extreme variations of L. rufa  perfectly fit the description of... L. mitsukurri  .” (See “Discussion” below.).
