Following Chandler's key, I am quite confident this is a male Platypeza consobrina.
Can this be confirmed?

The only part I hesitated was the mention of "face between strongly convex parafacials is bare" - so for clarification, there are hairs on a structure above the proboscis - is this the clypeus rather than the face?

I think P. consobrina is correct:
- Cell cup about as long as vein A1+CuA2 YES
- Legs black with base of tibiae partly and first tarsomeres partly yellowish YES
- Knob of halteres pale brown YES

Unfortunately I don't have a PDF of the book, but I can recommend the book which is available at veldshop.nl for about 15€ and includes the complete text of the key in English.

Thanks Eric - I will order it then. I wanted a digital version to better be able to translate it, but with an English key this is fine

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
