Many thanks, Jan! TumbsUp
Genus is more than I hoped for. I would have been perfectly happy with its family. Grin

There is only one genus of Camillidae in Europe and four in total. Camilla is fairly widespread. The genus Afrocamilla is found in Africa and western North America. The other two genera are restricted to Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.

At least in America and Africa they are rarely collected so surprises are possible.

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
