3.5. The Phasia pusilla  species­group

The Phasia pusilla  species­group includes all the species previously placed in the subgenus Hyalomyia (sensu Herting 1984)  . Although the group is easily diagnosed as follows, it lacks defining characters and some species in this group are probably more closely related to the Phasia argentifrons  species­group than to other species of the Phasia pusilla  species­group.

Diagnosis: Head spherical; fronto­orbital plate entirely, not swollen; dorsal facets of eye larger than ventral facets. Parafacial bare; lower margin of face projecting, visible in profile. Thorax black, shining or thinly pruinose; one katepisternal seta. Scutellum black, with two pairs of marginal setae; basicosta brown to black. Wing always hyaline; R 4+5 with a long petiole, usually more than 0.25 times as long as preceding section of R 4+5; M meeting R 4+5 at right angle. Abdomen black, subovate, with pruinosity; tergite IV and V with distinct hair spots. Male syncercus notched posteriorly; surstylus longer than cercus; phallus haired.
