Ukraine, Rivne region, on March 23.
There is a weak version that it is Hydrotaea, but I'm not sure. It is probably impossible to determine the species ...

Hi Victor, it's another male Pollenia who's lost his hair (like me...). It has a dark basicosta and distance between the eyes is approx. like the width of the flagellum. It's probalbly a Pollenia cf. labialis.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

With the central dark pre-sutural stripe, this is P. vagabunda

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
