Could anyone please help with possible id on this Myopa..?

Due to the many long hairs on tergites, legs etc, my thoughts go to vicaria,??

Seen in Denmark, near Aalborg in former sand pit, feeding and resting in a small group of willow trees.

Hi Gert, as far as I can see, Myopa vicaria is correct.

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
