I must say again: Moegistorhynchus longirostris --- IS AN INCREDIBLE FLY!
Nemestrinidae (another favorite family for me) - Moegistorhynchus longirostris. Unfortunately there is only in Africa. Sad

Definitely Eurychoromyia mallea Hendel. In the next few months, I have a paper coming out about this fly and it's relatives (it's in press).

Although there are a lot of other very cool lauxanioids! Such as Wawu monstruosus (van der Wulp).

I hate to disappoint anyone, but I have no other specimens of Eurychoromyia mallea than the 4 collected by Schnuse 100 years ago (although I have tried 3 times!). However, I've solved the "mystery" about what it "is", so to speak. I hope that'll be enough to make people happy. Smile

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
