Chrysotus laesus? - Possibly C. laesus

I have another Dolichopodidae suspect. A fly with a metallic blue tinge on the whole body. It was really tiny, but at least there were two of them on the same leaf. Hard to say, if that was a pair or not, but they differed in size. A bold guess from my side would be Chrysotus laesus, but that is not really reliable.

Germany, Southern Bavaria, Munich (-West), leaf, 23.05.2024, app. 2-3 mm (maybe a little less)

Greetings, Uli

It may be Chrysotus laesus.

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
