Hello everyone,

I found this fly yesterday in the Black Forest, southwest Germany. I estimate the size to be around 8 mm. I think it's the genus Hylemya. Is that correct and can we perhaps even say more? Unfortunately I only have this picture.

Greetings Siggi

Hi Siggi, I think it's a male Hylemya vagans.

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
