Hi all!

Is this one identifiable by only this one picture? Criorhina berberina?

Approx. 12 mm long (very rough guess)

3.6.2023, Germany, Upper Bavaria, Northern slopes of Mt. Hochfelln, on a large piece of dead wood at the edge of a meadow used as ski slope during winter, about 1040 m a.s.l., coordinates 47.77201, 12.55935
Rupert Huber attached the following image:

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
