I think it's a male N. cibaria, but I've never seen almost completely black legs before.

Hi Konrad,
The ovipositor is a little difficult to make out, but as far as I can see this is indeed N. cibaria. And yes sometimes the legs are quite dark.

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
