The first pic seems to show dark fore femora and entirely dark abdominal tergites,
which is not the case of 2nd+3rd pic. These two pictures could be considered as H. cameraria, as your other recent posts. I know that reproduction of colours can be tricky - compare variuous pics in
If you are sure that all the pictures show the same individual, the first pic must be indeed identified as cf. H. cameraria as well...

Thank you very much Jan Maca! I was a bit thrown off by its abdomen so overlooked "H. cameraria".

I rechecked the raw pictures and these are all of the same individual. Sharp pictures of the front femore all show this darkish colour where in some angels some lighter yellow occurs.

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
