This must surely be in the genus Lamprolonchaea?

Making it clear that I am an amateur with no training or knowledge, in my opinion, I think both of you are right in the family and gender.
In fact, seeking your guidance in the Gallery of DI, and found this picture of a fly, without being the same, is close to your guidance. http://www.dipter...oto_id=757
I'll edit the title following your guidelines.
Many thanks for your help.
a greeting

Please do submit this to the gallery. There are no Lamprolonchaea images in the gallery!

You can see an image of Lamprolonchaea here:

Yes, I think gender is Lamprolonchaea. But I will try, if possible to determine the species, which would be perfect.
I found this entry in the D.I. Forums: http://www.dipter...pid=138866
U it says on the link provided by conopid: http://lonchaeida...a/smaragdi
I will also process a photo more than they did, for if I could help further progress in the identification.
If within a reasonable time is not possible to determine the species, the DI would go to the Gallery as a genre.
Regards

Hi Maherjos

Yes definitely a Lamprolonchaea which are notoriously difficult to determine to species level but fortunately only one species has been recorded in Europe and as a result I can say fairly confidently that this is a male L. smaragdi Walker. I have seen speciemens recently from Mallorca.. Do you mind if I use the top photo attributed to you on the Lonchaeidae website??

Very grateful for your confirmation.
It will be a pleasure for me to incorporate my photography on the Lonchaeidae website. I can also make available a larger photograph, or other shots of the same insect.
