Hi

I would appreciate very much genus ID of this specimen. Some came to normal light at my house in Kourou, French Guiana, at the beginning of the dry season.
Length of body is 16 mm.

So if you need some more pictures I will try to get them.
Thank you for your efforts toward our strange neotropical Tabanidae.

The antenna is broken. The shape of the missing flagellum is useful for identification. See discussion here of some of the nocturnal neotropical Tabanidae: https://diptera.i...ost_284919.

I am sorry. I don’t recognize the genus and My experience in the Neotrpics is too limited to identify a damaged specimen. The lack of antennae is killing...

I think it may be the genus Cryptotylus and may be the species C unicolor.

I am preparing the photos of antennae.
