Thyreophora cynophila, an emblematic, strange-looking and colourful piophilid fly, which was thought to be globally extinct since the late 1840's has been rediscovered in Spain.
It is a very peculiar species, and its rediscovery has been peculiar too: it has been collected simultaneously and independently by two groups in two different regions of Spain.

The references of both papers are:

- Martín-Vega, D.; Baz, A. & Michelsen, V. 2010. Back from the dead: Thyreophora cynophila (Panzer, 1798) (Diptera: Piophilidae) 'globally extinct' fugitive in Spain. Systematic Entomology, doi:10.1111/j.1365-3113.2010.00541.x

http://www3.interscience.wiley.com/journal/123601592/abstract

- Carles-Tolrá, M.; Rodríguez, P.C. & Verdú, J. 2010. Thyreophora cynophila (Panzer, 1794): collected in Spain 160 years after it was thought to be extinct (Diptera: Piophilidae: Thyreophorini). Boletín de la Sociedad Entomológica Aragonesa, 46: 1-7.

A bit like waiting for a bus....You wait for 160 years and two come along at the same time...Great looking fly though.

Anybody thought it is extinct? Huh? I didn't. There are over 15 specimens in German collections, and the Panzer's type is extant, too. Nosferatumyia, which is known from 2 specimens (not younger than those of T. cynophila, looks more fascinating (but also weird).

really the term "extinct" is wrong. Nevertheless it is a great rediscovery.

Well, Valery, any photos of that enigmatic Nosferatumyia? Smile

Jorge: Sorry, no photographs. At the time Nosferatumyia was described I had no digital camera. Before dissection, I have made detailed total figures. The pdf can be downloaded here:
