Hi everyone,

Here is another male Ceratopogonidae. Compared to the previous one here, the wings are longer (covering the whole abdomen) and the hind basitarsus is longer, so I think this is a Dasyhelea.

Do you think this is correct and could it be possible to go further?

Thank you for your help!

I agree with Dasyhelea. It is a difficult genus, at least based on photos.

Thank you John! The confirmation of the genus is already a great news!
