This fly was collected in brazilian southern Palmas, ParanĂ¡, circa 1100m, during last summer (december 2013). It's 1,0 cm length, quite huge for a Chloropidae... Does anyone have a clue? Is it Platycephala? I've never seen it before...

Thanks for any help!

It is a chloropid but I cannot say for certain that Platycephala would be the only Neotropical genus with a hgead shaped like that.

Hello, I'm having a problem posting new threads, as the "No new Threads allowed..." is showing up on all of the forums. Is there some sort of thread limit I've exceeded?

SabineH: you have to be logged in to see "New Thread" in the right upper corner of each "forum" site. In the case of accidental logout you have to start over.
