No Chrysotus, in my opinion, but rather Thrypticus.

Thank you Marc. Too much difficult for me. What's the difference between the two genera?

Chrysotus and Thrypticus are superficially similar in some of the easy characters. Both have apical arista, no preapical bristles on femora, and crossvein m-cu shorter than distal section of Cu. Species of Thrypticus tend to have pale bristles instead of dark, and males have large genitalia like Medetera (which is in the same subfamily).

Indeed too much difficult for me, like I said before. And the shots aren't the best to distinguish the colour of the bristles I'm afraid.

Thank you anyway, John.
