Sarcophaga collusor Curran & Walley, 1934: 485   . 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 anteriorly, yellow or white posteriorly. 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), supraalars = 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. Anterodorsal surface of mid tibia with 1 median and 1 apical seta. Hind femur with a row of antero-ventral and a row of postero-ventral setae. Hind tibia with 1 seta in the basal third, 1 in the middle third and 2 preapicals on anterodorsal surface. Abdomen. Postero-ventral seams between T3/T4 and T4/T5 parallel. Microtrichosity of the abdomen laterally golden and grey. ST1+3 with only black hair-like setae. Three lateral setae on each side of T4. T5 with golden microtrichosity. Terminalia. ST5 orange. Medial margin of ST5 ∏-shaped. Inner margins of ST5 arms straight, with long hair-like setae posteriorly. Syntergosternite 7+8 longer than high in lateral view, brown anteriorly and yellow posteriorly, with golden microtrichosity. Epandrium bright orange. Cercus orange proximally and brown or dark brown distally. Cercal base with enlarged and rounded lobes. Cercal prongs in lateral view becoming progressively reduced towards the acute apex, tips of arms convergent. Cercus with a dorsal preapical projection, with setae normally sized and almost uniformly distributed on the cercal surface. Surstylus brown, longer than 2/3 of cercus, with an acute apex. Pregonite trapezoidal, becoming wider towards the apex in dorsal view, curved in lateral view, with a truncated 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 in the proximal half, with postero-dorsal surface transversely striate, and a bifurcated apex. 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. Four frontal setae situated below the dorsal limit of the lunule.
