I think this is a Ceratopogonidae (1 mm, found in Schwetzingen/Germany, 21.6.22). The images are bad, but the bect I could make.

Any suggestion, which one?

To my eye, this is an orthocladiine chironomid.

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
