If the name was transcribed in error from a handwritten note or label, a possible locality name in Brazil would be Óbidos http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Óbidos,_Brazil

A fly holotype is labeled with "Obrilonys" and "Jan" on its label , and the original description states "Obrilonys , Brazil". Neither year nor name of collector is given. I cannot find this locality and wonder if
anybody would have a clue?   The species is widespread in tropical South
America.
