Chloropidae: Thaumatomyia notata (Meigen, 1830). Apical scutellar setae extremely close together, setulae present on the surface of the ocellar triangle. Gena (jowl) below the eye narrow, 3rd antennal segment not longer than deep. A very abundant species, larvae predators of root aphids (Pemphigidae), thus, being useful insects in vegetable crops.
