Mysterious or Undescribed Asilidae Genera on iNat

This post is intended to collate observations of asilid genera that are either undescribed or that are currently unidentified and particularly noteworthy. It will be updated periodically, similar to my list of Asilidae observations stuck at superfamily or above. More genera will be added to this list in the near future, so check back regularly! I would welcome any thoughts on the identity of these taxa.




Name: Asilidae gen 1
Status: unidentified
Distribution: New Caledonia
Notes: Looks similar to Willistonina or Trichoura. Alternatively, might be related to Bathypogon (which would also make more sense geographically).

Notes: I suspect either Aczelia-group of Dasypogoninae or perhaps something related to Prolepsis.
