In the past, this specimen was identified as Dexiosoma caninum. But recently, the topic was bumped by somebody thinking it should be Dexia vacua.
What do you think?
Thanks in advance.

I agree that the abdominal pattern stronglly suggests fmale Dexia vacua. Rare species !

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
