Hello,

I photographed this fly in the Black River Gorges National Park, Mauritius, 650m a.s.l. on April 20th 2024. I think it is a Muscidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
Emanuele

Thank you! It seems like a good option, unfortunately I wasn't able to find much information about the species of this genus in the Mascarenes.

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
