The shape of the male genitalia
of the parental subspecies was similar between transects; average non-normalized morphological distance (D) was 0.
of Eupeodes latifasciatus Macquart (figure 2.
The color habitus plates, SEM photomicrographs, and male genitalia
were prepared using Adobe Photoshop CS4 and numbered in Adobe Illustrator CS4.
Terminology follows Schuh & Slater (1995) for general morphology, Kelton (1959) and Cassis (2008) for male genitalia
, and Fontes (1981) based on the works of Slater (1950) and Davis (1955) for female genitalia.
In the male genitalia
the shape of the valves, their appendages and the gnathos are similar to M.
can be recognized by the following combination of characteristics: (1) hind wings with CuA curved apically; (2) faintly marked cross veins basal to CuA of hind wing; (3) posterolateral spines on abdominal segment II not well developed, restricted to a small projection; (4) male styliger plate almost rectangular, without well developed posterolateral projections; (5) male genitalia
with two divergent sclerotized spines, directed posterolaterally, and a median membranous area, divided into two lobes (as in figure 3).
Also, the male genitalia
in species of Nadleria is virtually identical to the male genitalia
in species of Lachesilla in the group pedicularia, and in the specimen studied the distal halves of the claspers are extremely long, this and the peculiar paraproctal prongs also exclude the possibility of the specimen belonging in Nadleria.
In order to support the revalidation of Carminda, a comparison of the wings and the male genitalia
It differs from that taxon in details of the pattern elements, the more intensively marked hindwing, and structures of male genitalia
Male-to-female transgenders have been put in the MSM category, for having been born, and in some case still having male genitalia
