Male sepsids carrying pollinia as pseudopalpi were observed at three separate bait stations (small
dung baits set out to attract other flies) about 500m apart along a side trail in the Peninsula Sector of
Parque Nacional Volcan Arenal. Several pollinia-laden males were seen engaged in agonistic
interactions and some pollinia-bearing males were seen alone; one individual was seen bubbling
(egesting a bubble of fluid) with the paired pollinia flanking the bubble. No flies were seen with
pollinia adhering to any structure other than the mouthparts and the bubbling individual was the only
apparent female observed with pollinial "pseudopalpi".
