My first thread here ever, and I must admit that I feel a little unsecure what to do. Picture taken in our garden, Rheinbach, near Bonn, 200m above sea level, huge forest starts behind the garden. I took picture end of April. Is it not possible to add more than one picture? What if experts need different views on the fly I want to have identified?

Hi Jörg, and welcome to
Adding of more pictures is no problem: click on NEW REPLY, add some text (like 2nd) and your photo.
Unfortunately I'm not expert enough to tell the Myopa species but here https://home.hccn...myopa.html you find van Veen's key which is very helpful.

Hi Eric, I should have looked at your advice from 2,5 years ago :-( Thank you for your comments, those and the new ones. So I will add some text when replying to add another pic! And I will use the special fora when availablle, such as for Syrphidae and, very important for my recent collection, Asilidae! One day I will succeed .... :-)

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

Yes, dipterologists from far abroad, please buy your copy at veldshop. Stamps will be expensive, but he, the book is unreasonably cheap Smile
