I photographed this fly in Val Duron (TN), Italy, 1850m a.s.l. on August 2nd 2023. I think it is a Nephrotoma, but is it possible to identify its species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
ESant attached the following image:

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
