Thanks for the help from you both. I looked in the Photogallery at P. nitidula & photo (3) I noticed along the leading wing edge has a row of short hairs & then one longer hair at the end of the subcostal vein where there is a small notch in the wing. I can see the same in my first photo; is this something that all Psilopa Species have or is it unique to P. nitidula? Thanks again.

The leg colouring fits nitidula. The bristles on the wing edge are not diagnostic in this species.

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
