I am quite certain thai it belongs to Cheilosia latifrons (f). Naked eyes and tiny/no bristles on scutellum limits the candidates tremendously. If you have a front view, the face should have quite broad dust margins along the eyes.

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
