Laphria canis complex    Synonyms: Complex Laphria index.
Kingdom Animalia   >   Phylum Arthropoda   >   Class Insecta   >   Order Diptera   >   Family Asilidae   >   Genus Laphria   

Status:

This grouping is for any unidentifiable individuals of a difficult complex of small, black Laphria (complex in Maryland includes L. canis canis, L. winnemana, L. sicula, and an undescribed species). All females not mating with an identifiable male, and any males where the genitalia can't be seen clearly should be placed here. Unfortunately, females can't be determined without a microscope, and males require clear, close photos, or preferably, a specimen.

There are 54 records in the project database.
