<br />
O sujeito retratado possui uma termin&aacute;lia vis&iacute;vel, o que indica que &eacute; um macho. Gl&acirc;ndulas de ferom&ocirc;nio variam entre esp&eacute;cies.<br />
<br />
Elaphropeza s&atilde;o mais comumente encontradas em meio selvagem nas folhas, ervas, arbustos e &aacute;rvores de florestas em todas as regi&otilde;es tropicais do mundo. A agrega&ccedil;&atilde;o &eacute; alcan&ccedil;ada atrav&eacute;s de comunica&ccedil;&otilde;es qu&iacute;micas entre membros da mesma esp&eacute;cie; devido a amplitude de distribui&ccedil;&atilde;o do g&ecirc;nero, eles precisam se comunicar atrav&eacute;s de dist&acirc;ncias maiores para encontrarem os parceiros. Os adultos s&atilde;o predadores de pequenos artr&oacute;podes Desconhe&ccedil;o o comportamento das larvas e o processo ovo-adulto.<br />
<br />
Elaphropeza possuem um occipital convexo, gena pouco desenvolvida, dois pares de cerdas ocelares, olhos com microtrichia, p&oacute;s-pedicular c&ocirc;nico ou lanceolado contendo um &quot;estilete&quot; distal em formato de aresta, anepisterno nu, c&eacute;lula basal radial (br) reduzida nas asas e modifica&ccedil;&otilde;es abdominais intrasegmentais entre os tergitos 3-5 ou 4-5. Essas caracter&iacute;sticas as distinguem de forma gen&eacute;rica de outros Tachydrom&iacute;neos (Shamshev and Grootaert, 2007; Cumming and Sinclair, 2009).<br />
<br />
Huber et al. (2007) sugere que a posi&ccedil;&atilde;o de acasalamento de Hybot&iacute;deos, baseado em fotografias de pares durante a c&oacute;pula, compreende a falso-macho-em-cima, &quot;onde o macho fica acima da f&ecirc;mea mas curva seu abdome para o lado envolta dela para que sua genit&aacute;lia entre em contato com a f&ecirc;mea por baixo&quot;.<br />
<br />
Algumas entidades consideram Elaphropeza (Macquart, 1827) um subg&ecirc;nero de Drapetis (Meigen, 1822).<br />

Informa&ccedil;&otilde;es cercando o processo ovo-adulto e comportamento larval me s&atilde;o desconhecidas e ser&atilde;o apreciadas e devidamente creditadas se fornecidas.<br />

The subject portrayed has a visible terminalia which suggests it is a male. Pheromone glands vary morphologically between species.<br />
<br />
Elaphropeza are most commonly found in the wild on the leaves, herbs, shrubs and trees of forests in all tropical regions of the world. Aggregation is achieved through chemical communications between members of the same species; since the genus has wider distribution they need to communicate through longer distances to find partners. Adults are predators of small arthropods. I&#039;m unaware on the behaviour of the larvae or about the egg-adult process.<br />
<br />
Elaphropeza possess a convex occiput, undeveloped gena, two pairs of ocellar setae, eyes with microtrichia, conical to lanceolate postpedical bearing a distal arista-like stylus, bare anepisternum, shortened basal radial cell (br) on the wings and intersegmental abdominal modification between tergites 3-5 or 4-5. These traits generically distinguish them from other Tachydromiines (Shamshev and Grootaert, 2007; Cumming and Sinclair, 2009).<br />
<br />
Huber et al. (2007) suggests that the mating position in Hybotids based on photographs of pairs during copulation comprises of a false-male-above, &quot;where the male sits above the female but bends his abdomen sideways around her so that his genitalia contact the female from below&quot;.<br />
<br />
A few entities consider Elaphropeza (Macquart, 1827) a subgenus of Drapetis (Meigen, 1822).<br />

Agradeço ao Geoff Williams (https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100008754940277&fref=gc&dti=1496801680630149) pela sugestão do gênero e redirecionamento ao Dan Bickel que me recomendou um expert, o José Rafael do INPA (Instituto Nacional de Preservação Ambiental) a quem agradeço pela confirmação do gênero e sugestão da espécie.

O sujeito retratado possui uma terminália visível, o que indica que é um macho. Glândulas de feromônio variam entre espécies.

Elaphropeza são mais comumente encontradas em meio selvagem nas folhas, ervas, arbustos e árvores de florestas em todas as regiões tropicais do mundo. A agregação é alcançada através de comunicações químicas entre membros da mesma espécie; devido a amplitude de distribuição do gênero, eles precisam se comunicar através de distâncias maiores para encontrarem os parceiros. Os adultos são predadores de pequenos artrópodes Desconheço o comportamento das larvas e o processo ovo-adulto.

Elaphropeza possuem um occipital convexo, gena pouco desenvolvida, dois pares de cerdas ocelares, olhos com microtrichia, pós-pedicular cônico ou lanceolado contendo um "estilete" distal em formato de aresta, anepisterno nu, célula basal radial (br) reduzida nas asas e modificações abdominais intrasegmentais entre os tergitos 3-5 ou 4-5. Essas características as distinguem de forma genérica de outros Tachydromíneos (Shamshev and Grootaert, 2007; Cumming and Sinclair, 2009).

Huber et al. (2007) sugere que a posição de acasalamento de Hybotídeos, baseado em fotografias de pares durante a cópula, compreende a falso-macho-em-cima, "onde o macho fica acima da fêmea mas curva seu abdome para o lado envolta dela para que sua genitália entre em contato com a fêmea por baixo".

  1. Welcome to JungleDragon, Oscar! Thanks for a most excellent first post. One question: you speak in your text of a species suggestion, but it's not exactly clear to me which species name you think it is? Posted one year ago
    1. Ferdy, this fly in the genus Elaphropeza, and is likely (cf) to be biseticauda species. Or, at least appears very similar to that species. Posted one year ago
      1. Thanks, did try that combination but couldn't find a record in my usual source, eol.org. Did find it here:

        1. Seems like there isn't much out there on this species so far. Posted one year ago
  2. Bem-vindo ao JungleDragon Oscar, esperamos que goste do site! Posted one year ago
