I think this is Loxocera but can't decide species. Maybe L. nigrifrons? Bedfordshire, UK. Mixed woodland. June 2022.

nigrifrons should have a black scutellum and frons...this looks to have both of those yellow. The face looks pale below the antennae, so albiseta would be the first thought.

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
