What is that strange 'naked field' on it's side? Shock

Photo's where made by changing of sunnlight so some are danker and it's colour can differ.

To me it looks like Anthomyiidae (about 118 species in the Netherlands). What you see is a female, loaded with eggs!

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
