Thread subject: :: Steganinae from Canary Islands -> Cacoxenus subg Gitonides

That fly can be a Phortica (subg. Sinophthalmus) sp. It is not P. (S.) picta which I know. Except of P. (S.) picta there is one more described P. (S.) species, one described subspecies and a number of not yet studied taxa. Distribution from SW USA to S. America. Also I do not exclude Cacoxenus (subg. Gitonides). If the specimen is available, I would like to study it, also I can arrange its DNA sequencing (most of its body can stay preserved if needed so).
