Yes, probably Richardia. As concerns the "antlers" (not very clearly shown), cannot they be Laboulbenia? It is known that Richardia spp. harbour some of them.

Yup, you can view the wing from above (dorsal side) and from beneath (ventral side).

Hey Dipterists! Quick Question: Vein r2+3 bare beneath. I've always assumed that this is below as in when you look at the wing flat. Am I right? Thank youuuuu! Pfft
