Hello,

I photographed this fly on the seashore in Kendwa, Zanzibar (Tanzania), on February 25th 2023. I think it's a Dolichopodidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
Emanuele

I agree with Thinophilini of some kind, probably Thinophilus

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
