Hello, may be you can answer this question at least about the family. Tephritidae or not
Unfortunately I am not an expert.
It's a small fly (body is about 5 mm). French Guiana (neotropical).
Thanks.

Many thanks John. For sure it is a very strange Dolichopodidae, especially the wings pattern !
May be it is possible to identify more acutely ? A tribe or something....

The wing pattern is unusual for Dolichopodidae. Most markings are simpler, with dark bands or white spots on the wingtip. The oddest wing I have seen in the family belongs to the Brazilian genus Mberu.

My first guess is Paraclius or Pelastoneurus, based on the angled M vein and strongly bristled legs.

Checking a book I see there are other neotropical genera in this group, including Stenopygium which has marked wings.

I think this fly strongly resembles (if not identical with) Stenopygium punctipennis (Say, 1829), originally described from Mexico, also recorded from Bolivia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Panama and Venezuela. Cf. Soares & Ale-Rocha, 2020 (New records of Stenopygium Becker (Diptera: Dolichopodidae) from the Neotropical Region, and a key to species - Zootaxa 4868 (1): 129-134), figures here: https://zenodo.or...ds/4417405
While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.

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
