The data set of Apocephalus ant-decapitating fly females from the Arthropods of La Selva project is extended to include 3,341 specimens from 465 Malaise trap samples. The species accumulation curve from this sample has not yet leveled, and estimators of total species number do not work effectively with these data. The total number of Apocephalus species at La Selva remains unknown, in spite of the extraordinarily large amount of collecting.
