Photographed very recently from Zhejiang China. Around 4mm in body length. Oscinellinae? Or something like Steleocerellus? Thanks as always.

It is not Chloropidae. It has a complete subcosta, strong vibrissae, and a differently shaped antenna.

I was considering Sciomyzidae, but if that is a very strong vibrissa I see on the corner of the head it must be some other family.

Ah, yes, thank you John for pointing out the nuances. I'll take a look at other families. TumbsUp

Maybe a Hendelia species or other Druid-fly.

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
