I am not sure, but could this be Platystomatidae?

Found this wing-waving beauty in:
Indonesia, W-Papua, Manokwari: Syoubrig (Mokwam), 1600-1700m asl, 15.08.2010
Thank you for your time!

Elassogaster or Microepicausta, both genera poorly studied in PNG; no keys.

I think there's a better option than Dr. Korneyev's suggestion which is given here:
While others can't climb, using infinite pains,
I, gravity turning to jest,
Ascend, with all ease, perpendicular planes,
Rough or smooth, just as pleases me best.

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
