Hello everyone!

Could anyone help me with the ID of this fly please ? It was captured in a mango orchard in Reunion Island!

Thanks in advance!

Rhodesiella ?rugosa, male, Chloropidae. Typical are: Anepisternum (= mesopleuron) with many short hairs, hind margin of eye concave, long arista and often long scutellum. Many undescribed species in tropical regions!
Read enlarged notes in thread which presents the same specimen from La RĂ©union.
