( Figs. 41, 42 View FIGURES 41–53. 41–42 ) (fig. 36 in Curran & Walley 1934, figs. 10–15 in Lopes & Tibana 1982, fig. 70 in Carvalho & Mello- Patiu 2008)

Sarcophaga anguilla Curran & Walley, 1934: 484   . Guyana, Kartabo. Holotype male, in AMNH (not examined).

Description. Male. Head. Ocellar setae equal to or shorter than postoculars. Outer vertical seta of same size as postoculars. Black orbital setae. Three frontal setae situated below the dorsal limit of the lunule. Genal setae black dorsally, yellow or white ventrally. Setae on genal surface black dorsally and yellow or white ventrally. First two rows of occipital setae black, others yellow. Thorax. Chaetotaxy: acrostichals = 0 + 1, dorsocentrals = 0 + 3 (anterior one shorter), intra-alars = 2 + 2 (anterior one shorter), supra-alars = 2 + 3, basal scutellars = 4. Prosternum and posterior surface of hind coxa with black setae. Three katepisternal setae. Postalar wall with only black setae. Lower calypter with a central dark spot and a fringe of long hair-like setae along outer margin, extending almost to its posterior margin. Mid femur with a ctenidium. Antero-dorsal surface of mid tibia with 1 median and 1 apical seta. Hind tibia antero-dorsally with 1 seta in the basal third, 1 in the middle third and 1 preapical. Abdomen. Postero-ventral seams between T3/T4 and T4/T5 parallel. Microtrichosity of the abdomen laterally grey and golden. ST1+3 with only black hair-like setae. Two lateral setae on each side of T4. T5 with golden microtrichosity.

Terminalia. ST5 orange. Medial margin of ST5 ∩-shaped. Inner margins of ST5 convex with rounded apophyses anteriorly, with a patch of short setae on the median region, and long hair-like setae posteriorly. Syntergosternite 7+8 longer than high in lateral view, orange, with golden microtrichosity. Epandrium bright orange. Cercus orange proximally and brown or dark brown distally. Cercus in lateral view progressively narrowing towards the apex, with setae on dorsal surface distributed apically. Dorsal margin of cercus curved, and cercal apex acute in lateral view. Surstylus brown, finger-shaped with anterior margin slightly projected towards the anterior body region, with a rounded apex. Postero-distal surface of surstylus as sclerotized as the rest of surstylus. Pregonite tongue-shaped, curved in lateral view, with a lateral projection, and a rounded apex. Postgonite elongated, with a hooked apex. Basi- and distiphallus connected by a desclerotized strip. Juxta without demarcated connection with the phallic tube. Juxta sclerotized and composed of one long plate without juxtal lateral plate and juxtal horns. Juxta with the lateral edges folded ventrally, resembling a tube. Distiphallus with a pair of lateral styli separated, each with a longitudinal cleft. Short vesica composed of one entire plate without demarcated connection with the distiphallus.

Variable features. Ocellar setae longer than postoculars. Outer vertical seta longer than postoculars. Four frontal setae situated below the dorsal limit of the lunule. Chaetotaxy: dorsocentrals = 0 + 2, intra-alars = 1 + 2 (anterior one shorter), supra-alars = 1 + 2. Hind tibia antero-dorsally with 1 seta in the basal third, 1 in the middle third and 2 preapical. Three lateral setae on each side of T4. A few specimens display asymmetry in the number of postsutural acrostichal setae, with 2 setae on the left side and 1 on the right.

NEOTROPICAL— Argentina (La Rioja, Tucumán), Bolivia, Brazil (Ceará, Federal District, Mato Grosso, Río de Janeiro, São Paulo), Colombia (Amazonas, Antioquia, Boyacá, Meta, Santander), Costa Rica, Guyana, Mexico (Chiapas), Nicaragua, Panama, Peru (Madre de Dios), Trinidad & Tobago ( Trinidad).
