  • Lonchaea Fallen (figs. 48, 49): Lonchaea (3.4-4.2 mm) is a black, heavy-bodied fly with a pointed abdomen and red-brown eyes. The antennae have three segments with a subapical arista; the third segment is much more elongate than that of other flies discussed here. The wing (fig. 48A) is similar to that of Medetera but has a small cross vein nearer the apical cross vein. The larva (fig. 48B) has soft skin and internal mouthparts.
