Wow, nice specimen!
I don't think this is Sciomyzidae, to me it looks more like a Pyrgotidae!
But I am not sure!

It reminds me of the Psilid genus Loxocera.
Very long third antennal segment and triangular headshape (in profile)
So possibly a Psilidae ?

Some Japanese friends identified this as a Platystomatidae species Lamprophthalma japonica Frey.

This was my first time to encounter a species belonging to this family.

I think they may be right with the family. If they even know a species name, then who am I to start doubting them. Wink

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
