I think this is a Hydrotaea sp.
Is this correct? Can the species be identified?

Very unusual point of view. Not Hydrotaea. At 25 Dec 2022 should be Fannia canicularis.

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
