Thread subject: :: French Guianan - Conopidae

Here is a photo from Stéphane Brule in French Guiana. Could anyone confirm whether I have guessed the correct family ... and possibly add any more information? :)

EDIT: Jorge suggested possibly Conopidae ... I have caught very similar syrphids but the proboscis and the extreme waist are starting to convince me that it might be a conopid :)
