I found this fly on April 15, 2024 on a blade of grass in a forest area in Hesse (Germany).

Not tessellata. Was it really as big as that species (12-14 mm)?

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
