Thread subject: :: Rhynchopsilopa (Ephydridae) <- Tiny fly with strong antennae, what family?

Posted by guplox on 24-07-2023 07:45

Photographed recently from Zhejiang China. Tiny, around 2mm in body length. Body with metalic green lustre. Antennae look strong. Looks somewhat like a Lauxaniidae but didn't seem to walk/move as slowly as a typical lauxaniid. What family could it be in? Thanks as always!
