I do not have the best resources on Ceratopogonidae, but know only about "Neotropical Ceratopogonidae (Diptera: Insecta)".

The following steps were taken by me to ID:
Eyes very narrowly separated, do not seem to spot macrotrichia on the wings, M forking just before r-m, normal tarsus?, would the genital (gonostylus) be seen as at least small?, radial cells with very small or unclear separation, anepisternum shows no setae → Could this be Nilobezzia?
