Asilinae: Eraxasilus sp., male. This same species has been recorded from Tambopata Reserve in Madre de Dios (Fisher 1985) but has not yet been adequately identified. It keys to Eraxasilus gerion in Carrera's 1959 paper on the genus; it differs from that sp. by having the white abdominal band narrower - restricted to segment 7.

Thanks much for the det and info Eric. The males of this species were extremely wary. Couldn't get close. I think I got close shots of a female though. Had a similar golden 'mane'. Will post shortly.

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
