Thread subject: :: Tabanidae: Pangonius Morocco -->> Ectinocerella surcoufi

Hi Johan,

Very, very nice indeed, this is what we'd hoped for and not a Pangonius, but an Ectinocerella ! An north African endemic genus.
Three species have been described: coreussi, surcoufi and villeneuvei. The status of these species is unclear, given the paucity of material. Especially villeneuvei is not beyond reasonable doubt.
Your female agrees totally with E. surcoufi, as does the female in my collection.
