Hi,

I found it in Cotonou, Benin. 2022/09/18.

Or a Celyphidae?

No doubts, Platystomatidae.
Naupoda sp. (Scholastinae).
Neither comprehensive revisions nor keys to known species. Sorry.
Perhaps Andy Whittington can recognize the species.

I agree with Val, this appears to be Naupoda. As far as I can tell from the photograph, this is not a species known to science, but that would need to be verified by examination of specimens.

Some flies preserved in ethanol and then pinned often get the eyes sunken, how can this be avoided? Best answer: I usually keep alcohol-collected material in alcohol

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
