Why not Scaeva selenitica? Do you have more pictures, a frontal view perhaps?

Thanks for the hint. Unfortunately I was only able to take one photo. On closer comparison, I can say that Scaeva selenitica is very likely correct.

With the swollen, hairy frons, I would definitely say Scaeva selenitica.

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
