Using the "Faune de France" 06 of Seguy, I end up on Hylemya nigrimana. H. vagans[\i] isn't in the keys. It has the femur I grey and not yellow, so is it [i]vagans?

I realised that Botanophila fugax is also a good match.

Comment welcome.

The plumose arista rules out Botanophila fugax.

As far as I know the two species can at present only be identified using male sexual characters

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
