Photographed recently from Zhejiang China. Tiny, around 2mm in body length. Body with metalic green lustre. Antennae look strong. Looks somewhat like a Lauxaniidae but didn't seem to walk/move as slowly as a typical lauxaniid. What family could it be in? Thanks as always!
guplox 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
