Grateful for its identification.

Hi, I don't think it's one of the Calliphoridae, the wing venation points to Muscidae. I'm not the expert, but it's probably a Pyrellia cf. vivida.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

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
