Exoprosopa jacchus, photographed by Hectonichus.


Belongs within: Exoprosopini.
Contains: Palirika, Balaana.

Exoprosopa is a genus of beeflies that was identified by Lambkin et al. (2003) as paraphyletic with regard to a number of other genera, though they did not directly report supporting synonymies. Members of this larger group share the possession of a basal antennal stylomere (Lambkin et al. 2003).
