Thank you both for the family ID; 1st specimen I have seen for this family.
I have no access to the literature but attempted a genus ID based on MOND.
The long cup cell indicates Psilinae; short antennae rule out Loxocera; Psilosoma is not Nearctic.
Leaves it as Psila although I was unable to see any setae on the notopleuron.

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
