oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Some new species of South African Trypetidae (Diptera), including one from Madagascar
Very like both Dacus purus Curr., and D. ghesquierei Coll. *). There is, however, at least in the specimens with a more darkly developed wing-pattern, a distinct, although rather pale, apical spot at the tip of the wing. Further, there is no median, post-sutural, yellow spot or stripe on the mesonotum and no yellow fascia on the second abdominal segment. As to whether all three may prove to be but forms of one species can only be decided when more material is available for study.
