Grateful for any help with identification of the Psychoda, and if its female? can supply more photos or fly.

Merci

Impossible from a picture. And because the wings turn when dead it could also be a Philosepedon, so I cannot say more than Psychodini spec.

Thanks very much.

I can send you the fly if you would like to help further it would be interesting to know the species if possible and if a male or female for my work

I never collect. Ask a museum.

A close up of the last segments of the antenna maybe helps.

I found it dead in a flower, so I don't collect either. I don't have any means to get a bigger image however thanks very much for your help.

That's the perfect way of collecting! Send it to me and I'll have a look.
