According to the key by Sabrosky (1983), Desmometopa microps has brown halteres and D. varipalpis has black fore coxae.

D. sordida also has dark halteres.

If you want to identify it by what it is instead of what it is not, you will need clearer pictures of the pleura and head behind and below the eyes. The pleura may have a shiny spot behind and above the fore coxa. The cheek may be nearly as broad as the first flagellomere, or clearly narrower. There may be a polished "subocular crescent".

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
