Hi tristram,

It could possibly be Macquartia. The species in the genus look very similar to my fly. Maybe someone can identify the species?

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
