Can anyone identify this fly? I believe it belongs to Ulidiidae but I might be mistaken. Unfortunately, I managed to take only these two low-quality pictures before it flew away.

Impossible? Or wrong family?

Platystomatidae, no doubts.

Possibly, a Neoepidesmia sp.

Thanks, Valery, I didn't expect any more than a genus from these photos. Smile

Based on wing pattern plus body morphology, I think more likely: Coelocephala arcuata Bezzi, 1914. Neoepidesma tends to be more ‘ant-like’ in general form. If Coelocephala arcuata, then the vertex should be sunken between the compound eyes in frontal view.

Thanks a lot, Andrew. Unfortunately, I did not get a frontal view.
