Eric thank you. There where many Phazia barbifrons, and only once I've met this fly; it escaped before I could get a good shot, alas.

It is actually Ph. aurulans.
Check the oattern on thorax and the projecting mouth margin.
Moreover, climate change is hitting in severely, but Pskov is still a bit northern for aurigera

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
