Chamaemyia sp. Taxonomically rather a mess because of intraspecific variation and mismatch and differences of interpretation between names of described species and actual specimens. The fact that this specimen misses antennae does not improve matters.

Thanks, Paul!

Sometimes samples arrive crippled to the lab ... It's a pity.

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
