Observed recently from Zhejiang China (E121.28 N28.63), body length probably over 10mm. bicolored abdomen suggestive of Blepharipa spec. could it be a Goniini? Or something else in the tribe Exoristini? pity, only lateral and frontal shots (no dorsal) were taken.

Very difficult to say from these angles.
It is not Blepharipa, though it looks similar: calyptra is not angular (“Sturmiini”). Gut feeling, which can be very wrong, is Goniini.

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
