And a final fly among the 250 plus photos that I uploaded recently to my site.

I do not even risk to give my opinion on this particular one.

Scathophagidae could be correct, but then it is not a species of Scathophaga but one of the species with leaf mining larvae.

I do not remember the details of this fly, but based on the size of the confierous leaves it sits on, this must be much much smaller than S. stercoraria, which seems to be common in Japan too.

Several of the leaf mining ones are significantly smaller than Scathophaga, for example the species of the genus Nanna. For morphology, compare with this one: http://www.bioima...P39416.HTM.

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
