From Bukidnon, Mindanao, Philippines, May 6.
Is it possible to say anything on Family/Genus/Species for this one?
Medium size, bigger than an "ordinary" house fly.

Pyrgotidae tend to be nocturnal (attracted to light) and have marked wings. Maybe you have one of those.

Thank you very much for reply. Looks right to me. I saw this fly a few times at night, attracted to led light for moths.

Campylocera cf. mindanensis Hennig.
Males are not IDable to species.
Furthermore, it looks like all the nominal species of Campylocera in the Oriental Region are C. chelionotha (Rondani, 1875), but this statement I have never published.
