Try the review of Myennidini by Kameneva and Korneyev (2006).

Looks like I have already IDd this species from Mordovia very recently for Libor Dvorak -- perhaps the guy who collected it was asking Libor first.
And yes, I have confirmed it is P. millepunctata, the first record from Europe.
The publication of a short paper seem to be expected. I am not joining them as a coauthor. Just acknowledgements.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.

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
