A Platypalpus sp. found in North of France, at Oxelaere, the 13 August 2022, sitting along with Platypalpus minutus/australominutus on Hydrangea sp. bushes, at the north side of my house
Could it be a female Platypalpus pallidiventris ? (or cursitans ?)

Seems quite probable, but it is almost impossible to rule out the very similar species using photos.

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
