Periga extensiva/herbini, Misahualli, Napo, Ecuador,
450m, February 2007, courtesy of Leroy Simon.
Because the Leroy Simon specimen (above)
was taken at elevation of 450m, I think it may more likely be
Periga herbini than P. extensiva. Lemaire indicates the two species are almost
indistinguishable, except by examination of genitalia, and that
P. herbini flies at lower elevation, but the number of specimens
on record is very small.
