A chloropid (Oscinellinae) certainly, but proceeding from that observation is tricky, to say the least.

The long proboscis reminds me of the genus Oscinimorpha...

Hmm, the wing venation does not say Chloropidae to me. I'd suggest you try to compare with Milichiidae: Leptometopa.

Oh dear, you can be right, I forgot the whole family of Milichiidae and Leptometopa is unfamiliar to me as a genus. I've understood that the difference between Chloropidae and Milichiidae lies i.e. in the venation of the basal half of wing. Not too distinct here...

As a rule of thumb: In Chloropidae the R and M veins in the apical part of the wing are located in the anterior 50-60%. This specimen clearly has veins in the posterior part of the apical half.

Looks like a female of Leptometopa latipes, see http://milichiida...pa-latipes.

When I try to separate Milichiidae and Chloropidae, I mostly look for the setae on the frons (Milis with, Chloros without) and the little 'wave' in the posterior wing vein in Chloropidae (straight in Milis).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
