Hi,
This small fly was busy on ivy in Berlin on 8th October. I think it could be Hydrellia maura or H. griseola, but I don't know how to tell them apart. Help is appreciated!
Thanks, Sundew

Brown dusting extends onto the notopleuron, so that suggests this is H. albiceps (= H. maura)

Ah - H. maura has become a synonym, good to know. Many thanks for the enlightenment!

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
