chloropus probably not (miss triangular brown spots on ventral side of head)
it is e.g. Ornithomya fringillina or Ornithomya avicularia

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
