Is this larvae Platycheirus scutatus ? Or Eupeodes ?

Found on the ground in a mixed forest, Pyrénées, France

Happy new year to you, Jessica!
It's difficult to find the genus without a look at the posterior breathing tubes. The aphid may be a Cinaria sp. and you've found it on the ground - so I think a Eupeodes sp. seems to be quite likely.

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
