Here are some old photos from my early times of photography - sorry for the quality. They were taken on a rather dry meadow in Berlin on 10th July, 2008. Which species is more probable, H. maura or H. griseola? Or should this fly better stay "Hydrellia spec."? Thanks for any suggestions,
Sundew attached the following image:

I suspect this one is griseola, but I'm not 100% certain

OK, so H. cf. griseola, that's fine for me. Many thanks!

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
