I think this is a Stratiomyidae: it looks like Chloromyia formosa, but is about half as long. What do you think it could be?

You didn't mention the location - I think it's a male Microchrysa polita.

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