I think this is Gonia vacua, and it might be a male, but I am aware how tricky this genus is. So a glance from someone expert to tell me where I've gone wrong would be welcome :-) I have several photos of several individuals, but no specimen. From 6 April central lowland France, in woodland.

Thanks Theo! I feel like I'm on a roll -- a correct Tachinid ID and it's only April :-)

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
