So in Rui's photograph of the male of this species above, the rod-like structures emerging from the thorax are vestiges of the first pair of wings, and not the halteres? Only it would be interesting to put it mildly, if there was a fly with completely absent wings, but halteres still extant!
(Now awaits someone to tell me that such a fly species actually exists ... !!!)
