I think this is a Stratiomyidae: it looks like Chloromyia formosa, but is about half as long. What do you think it could be?

You didn't mention the location - I think it's a male Microchrysa polita.

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
