Great find & photos in your series here!

Indeed, using the key on pg. 243 of Curran[1941] (PDF here), this cerioidine goes to Cerioides vittipes via the couplet sequence:

1) "Metasternum at least narrowly sub-membranous in the middle, usually very widely so" (Note: Although this character is not visible in your photos, the alternative choice of couplet 2) here leads to inconsistent results...in addition, only Polybiomyia have a "complete post-metacoxal bridge", but they all have a much shorter frontal prominence);
8) "Antennal process at least as long as the first antennal segment" ;
9) "Second abdominal segment strongly constricted" ;
10) "Abdomen reddish" ;
11) "First abdominal segment yellowish the basal half or more" (and this is not tricolor!) ;
12) "Dark markings of the head and thorax black"......vittipes


Your photos of this male from Peru are also in excellent agreement with the original description of the male of Cerioides vittipes from Peru on pg. 246 of Curran[1941].

Note also that Cerioides vittipes is now a prior synonym for Monoceromyia vittipes, per the 1976 catalog of Thompson et al. See also this Picture Key to the genera of Syrphidae from the Brazilian Amazon...which leads to Monoceromyia here, and lists M. vittipes in the region.

Your photos form an excellent reference post for this distinctive and very beautiful cerioidine!

@Paul Beuk Thanks mate!! Best wishes!

Where are the meaning abbreviations of Lindner's series Die Fliegen der Palaearktischen Region, ie. f1: anterior femur, ...and what about "p"? (I don't possess volume I)

17.07.19 19:37
Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

16.07.19 13:31
Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
