Thanks Tony,
So worn I didn't think of it!
And I didn't know you could see Pollenia all year round, I'd only seen them in summer.

Most Pollenia overwinter as adults - it's how they get their English name "Cluster Flies" - because they often cluster in large aggregations indoors in attics and other cold rooms.

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
