Another tiny Chironomid flky on my balcony. May 6, Minas de Riotinto.

I thought it was a female of one of the genera with mottled wings I have photographed before, like Polypedilum and Psectrotanypus. But these very short forelegs don't fit.

Maybe it is possible to ID its genus. Smile

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
