What could be the family here ? Doesn't look so easy, for me and also for some others,......
The body of this adult is 11 mm long.
As the title says we are in neotropical French Guiane !!

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
