Clusiidae I think, looks similar [ish] to some of the Clusiodes sp. in the Gallery...

None of the Asteia I know loks likke this and the genitalia seem to be quite large for Asteia, too. I think we need to look in Anthomyzidae.

Santhomyza inermis seems close.

According to Jindrich Rohacek (specialist in Anthomyzidae) Paul identified it correctly as Sathomyza inermis (widespread in the Medetarenean) but (less probable) it could also be S. bezzii (known only from Italy). Closer examination of the specimen would be necessary to be sure.

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
