Looking for more information about this black and white fly with red eyes. Did i get the Family right this time? Any hints for a Subfamily?

Local: My garden. Southernmost state of Brazil near Uruguay.

Thanks in advance.

Anthomyiidae, Anthomyia sp. Male. Looks very similar to
Anthomyia silvestris which is found in Australia. Not sure about S.America though.

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
