I would say Dettopsomyia sp., but without any more profound study. I have no experience with this genus.

Thanks Jan for pointing me right direction with your excellent comments. I look up at the paper by Okada (1982):

my fly seems to have a closer resemblance to Styloptera.
Once again, thank you for your useful information.

Extensions in uppercase are (and were) accepted for gif, jpg, jpeg and png

OK, thanks Roger, now if someone would just ID the fly I would be happy.

FTAO - Gordon; Please make sure that you use lower case, because attachments with extensions in upper case (capitals) are rejected. So sayeth GOD AKA Paul. Cool

A file called "Fly01a" has an UPPERCASE "F" Gordon. The site takes a dim view of UPPERCASE "'F's"!! awkward

OK, it has started working now, no idea what was going on.

I know I have been away a long time - but why can't I load a 63Kb file called Fly01a
