It has large calypters, so it is not a rhinophorid. It's a tachinid, I think.

Thanks Nacho for your tip.
Possible Sarcophagidae: Nyctia halternata?
The Sardinian specimens have R4+5 petiolate.

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
