Thread subject: Diptera.info :: Caribbean Fly - Clusiidae, poss. Sobarocephala
Posted by marcaumarc on 20-04-2012 23:49
I am attaching a couple photos of a fly seen in tropical dry forest on the island of St. Martin in the Lesser Antilles. There seem to be a number of distinguishing features, but I'm not sure where to start with the ID.
Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Is it possible Psylidae??

Thanks, Sara, that definitely seems possible. Psilidae wasn't even on my radar.
