G'day all,

I collected this lower Brachycera trapped by the Australia sundew Drosera adelae. I am not sure the family of this bug as seen in the following image. Does anyone know the family of this insect? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

I think Dolichopodidae - perhaps Cryptophleps or similar?
