Under leaden skies with temperatures near zero, I decided to test Nikita's theory that diptera are an order for all-seasons. And in fact, the only creatures with the courage to move were the flies. Could this one possibly be Scathophagidae?

Photographed near Rome, Italy, 23-11-2005.

Thanks, Sarah

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
