Wing base is yellow, so not C. solstitialis. According to van Veen's Hoverflies of Northwest Europe ( C. coemiteriorum (sometimes spelled cemiteriorum) and C. basalis are the candidates. According to the broad face I tend to coemiteriorum. Compare Falk's pictures https://www.flick...245694458/.

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
