Before starting with a generic key, I'd like to ensure that Estheria is the correct genus.

My Diptera observations (and other living forms) can be found here, and corrections or comments over there would also be appreciated.

Yes, and my guess is female E. petiolata

Great, I was struggling with the key a bit, so wanted to make sure the genus is correct.

I excluded cristata, as I counted 4 post-sut dc. The basicosta looks quite dark and the bent vein is not clouded, which would suggest petiolata, but the area around m-cu should not be browned, whereas it looks a bit clouded to me, so this was my main area of uncertainty

I can't assess the cloudecness of the crossvein, hence "my guess". Humerus looks grey to me.

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
