It would be useful to know the name of the species that you are looking
for the type of. As far as I know, Bezzi never described a syrphid from
the Philippines. He did described 76 other species from there.
Are you looking for Stylogaster bakeri? We have a single Baker specimen
here which could be called a metatype.

I am looking for a type of a fly described by Bezzi from the
Philippines. Concerning the information in Horn & Kahle the material of
the Bezzi collection should be in the "Mus. Civ. Stor. Nat. Mailand".
Does anyone know someone whom I could ask about the collection?
Thank you very much,
