Paratoxophora cuthbersoni Engel, 1936

A monotypic genus, recorded from Botswana, Namibia, South Africa, Tanzania, and Zimbabwe.

Superficially similar to the cosmopolitan Toxophora, but body not entirely covered with scales/pile like in that genus and not as humpbacked.

Costa orange infuscate, rest of wing hyaline. Halteres orange-yellowish. Abdominal pattern like that of Lomatia in the largely bare, shiny black tergites with pale yellow bands on the edges. Tergites 2 and 4 possess long white pile on the margin except at the center. Legs entirely black, with black bristles.

Original description in Occasional Papers of the Rhodesian Museum 1: no. 5, pages 39-41 (PDF available upon request).

One observation on iNaturalist so far, from Mpumalanga, South Africa: Link https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/10924556
