Hi all,

I use a method where I extract DNA from a specimen using a so-called soft lysis approach. The specimen is left intact post-extraction.

Could any of you indicate whether this specimen is -as indicated by DNA - indeed D. vagans and whether or not all features are still recognizable? This one is from Heelsum, the Netherlands.

Thanks so much!

Best regards

Frons, notopleuron and wing tip with important characteristics are not visible. Please always add collecting date and coordinates to your posts.

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
