Hi Liliane, difficult to decide if the wings are nearly unvisible.But it looks like the wings are dark near the costa: Bombylius major.

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
