Northern Germany, Schleswig-Holstein, Halstenbek near Hamburg, found in area of tree nursery, earthwall (overgrown with small bushes like hazel, maple, roses, sloes, brambles) under big oaks, at a leaf of Rubus sp.; Outside Photo: kuv, 13th of July 2023.
Perhaps G. rotundatum? Please help to get the ID.

Hi kuv, I think G. rotundatum is close but this male here has the "scutellum with a continuous central line of dusting, which continues usually on the posterior 1/5 - 1/3 of the thorax".
So it's probably G. dolycoridis (G. desertorum is an east-palaearctic species). (T&H key + translation by Rayner, Raper 2001)

The other important characters like hairs on thorax and abdomen and acr and dc bristles are not visible...
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

Thank you very much Eric Smile.
So I'll change headline with a questionmark.
Greetings Kuv

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
