Hmm. I would put my money on Lonchaeidae, but it is difficult to see from just this picture.

When looking at the halteres I wouldn't put my money on Lonchaeidae!

LoL, okay. How about Chamaemyiidae, somewhere near Leucopis?

Hah! Chamaemyiidae/Leucopinae was also my first idea, but who knows about these tropical little beasties, what little/unknown families may lurk thereShock

Happy new year for us!

I ususally put down similar flies as belonging to Chloropidae.

and many more images:

Should I reconsider the family placement?

I think yours are correct, the first at least has correct wing venation. The one above appears to have a small ocellar triangle, so no Chloropidae.

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
