One of the Rhagionidae s.l., not one of the Chrysopilus or Rhagio group. Looking at Kerr's (2010) treatise on phylogeny and classification of Rhagionidae is may be close to Bolbomyia, which he places again in the separate family Bolbomyiidae. Apparently one species is known from Baltic amber, B. loewi (Meunier, F. 1902. Description de quelques diptères de l’ambre. - Annales de la Société Scientifique de Bruxelles (Mémoires) 26: 96-104.)

One notable difference: The anal cell in this specimen is open, just closed in the B. loewi as illustrated by Meunier.

128 in the New World as of 2009. Should be around 140 worldwide depending on how you split.

Seems to be a bug: new posts show with 1 reply which makes it look as though it's already been answered.
