Photographed very recently near a river in Zhejiang China. It looks to me like a Sarco but I wasn't able to find a genus that has similar venation. Or is it not a Sarco? Thanks!

Great! Thank you, Theo, for confirming the family! This Sarco has its vein M1+2 bending and reaching vein R4+5 instead of wing margin. This seems to rule out a lot of genera.

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
