Setacera species. I'd rather see a specimen to say which one.

Thanks - so Setacera is correct. I'll see if I can get further with the key of Mathis.

However, I have several specimens from this location (m and f) so if you would be interested/willing to look at them, then I can mail them to you. In that case please send me a message.

Some specimens will be coming your way - but based on the genitalia, my current best guess is S. breviventris

Thanks, Joris - it does indeed look like breviventris
