I cannot be sure from this photo (and with my Alzeheimer :-)), but you need what is on my old picture: plumose arista, long pterostigma (you have this) and dark tarsi.

Best regards

Hello Matey

thank you! I'm not 100% sure about the plumose aristae, but I think, the other characters are present in my fly.
Best regards,

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
