I am quite confident that this fly belongs to a family that I had never seen before. Keroplatidae or something related?

Dear Xespok,

unfortunately the wing veins are not clearly visible... However, the long antenna, habitus and the wings point imho to the genus Macrocera (Keroplatidae)
so you are right...
awaiting confirmation...

so long,
Paul Beuk

I do not know if there is anything closey related to Macrocera, or to what extent that genus is variable, but it is Macroceridae. The head is much broader than in the Macrocera species I know.

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
