The last one for now. As far as I'm concerned, this one really takes the cake. Those middle legs! What the heck?! Snesikondre, Sipaliwini, Suriname.

Thanks again for helping me getting an ID, and I hope you like my photos.

Cheers, Auke

Cholomyia. Males in a group near inaequipes have those long legs. They are weevil parasites.
