Definitely Elachiptera. it looks quite like the Palearctic E. tuberculifera (Corti).

Thanks Jorge, Nikita, and Kahis. You folks are a fantastic resource. Stone et al (1965) "Catalog of NA Diptera" list only costata, nigripes, vittata as potentially from my area. I suspect more species have been found here since 1965.

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
