Hello,

This is a member of Acroceridae, but not Ogcodes, as the antennae sit close to the vertex and not close to the mouth margin. With the key in Weinberg & Bächli (1997) https://www.googl...VvVoMLvxcl I arrive at Paracrocera orbicula that is often included in Acrocera (see https://diptera.i...d_id=74358)

What is valid ? Most recent authors do not accept Paracrocera as a genus.

In their paper of 2002 (https://www.googl...sIyRdqSHjs) Weinberg & Bächli accept the argumentation by Nartshuk (2000) and agree that Paracrocera is a junior synonym of Acrocera. So Acrocera orbiculus is correct.
