Could someone help me to identify this Tabanidae?
The photo was made near Barcelona, Catalonia, on 26.08.2018.
Perhaps Haematopota italica?

Thanks, Teo!
I don't have photos of the tergites of this specimen, but I attach one pic of another, perhaps this is more clear...

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
