Thanks to the beautiful Manual of Afrotropical Diptera which is now downlable, I get to Pyrgotidae with this yellow fly from Ivory coast, and the family was confirmed on the forum:
H. Dumas : Côte d'Ivoire : Man : -- : 25/08/2019
Altitude : 1200 m - Taille : wing: 8.4 mm
Réf. : 251456

Then I found Nosferatumyia's paper dealing with afrotropical Campilocera:
Korneyev, V. A. (2016). New Taxa and Synonymy in the Family Pyrgotidae (Diptera, Tephritoidea). II. Subtribe Adapsiliina and Afrotropical Campylocera. Vestnik zoologii, 50(3), 195-218[/i]....
The habitus looks quite similar to this specimen and it possesses an incomplete costa not reaching apex of medial vein ...
So couldl it be a Campylocera?
Thank you for your help Smile

I was pretty sure that I have replied.

Yes, a Campylocera.

One of the species formerly assigned to Clemaxia Enderlein. The group is unrevised, known from 5-6 specimens in World collections. Variability is unclear, males cannot be associated with females.

A "dead end street"

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