Hi John,

Thanks a lot for identifying.
Could you tell me what speaks against Chyromyidae?


Bristles of the head and thorax are black. In Chyromyidae they are usually yellow to brown. Tibiae have preapical bristles, absent in Chyromyidae. Two pairs of reclinate fronto-orbital bristles are the normal condition in Lauxaniidae but Chyromyidae often have three. Most Chyromyidae have weak vibrissae.
