Hi everyone,

I feel like this should be a fairly obvious one but the key I am using (Stubbs-Drake 2001) only leads me to Chloromyia
formosa which is obviously wrong. It resembles Stratiomys singularior but the first few antennae on mine are much shorter. Does someone recognise this?
Thanks a lot!

Which is a bit difficult to find in Stubbs. Smile

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
