Hello Eugéne, I've come across this thread several times and now I'm quite sure it is P. fasciata indeed:
tergite 2-4 with black apical bands - broad in the middle
tergite 5 with a black triangle
(difficult to see if the dc are unisericate and if there are no short setae on the notopleural area, but it's possible).
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

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
