This one - about 3-4mm length - has me stumped! I'm sure I have determined this before, but this time my memory fails me and I can't even key it to family, let alone genus :( Can anyone help?

By the way the arista are long - I broke them when the pin with the specimen fell over :(

Wing with vein m forked and no diskcell -> Bicellaria (Hybotidae).
It's easy to identify the genus but to get to specis in Bicellaria is difficult.

Opetia - of course! Many thanks Rui.
