Species text
Phasia barbifrons was exhibited at the 1999 annual meeting of Dipterists Forum by Laurence Clemons who found it at a pasture site in Kent in June 1999; it is another phasiine presumed to parasitise Heteroptera. Its build and appearance resemble the common species P. pusilla with which it may have been confused in the field (Clemons 2001). References
