The specimen below is an Estheria specimen that I collected in Corinth in 09/25/2022. For the generic identification I used Moschweb (http://www.tachin...chweb.aspx) and for the specific one this paper (https://www.resea..._the_genus). I think that I probably managed to correctly id the female, but I would like a second opinion (especially for couplet 15, where postpronotum color is used as a character. What do you believe?

Thanks!

I think a decent lateral shot of the head is needed to make progress here .....

thanks

I added a lateral shot of the head using my phone camera, plus a lateral one using the stereoscope, for bigger detail (e.g., rows of parafacial).

By the way, I have sent you a PM about the Phyto from Lesvos and will upload an uknown Stevenia soon, too.

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
