Is this another Calyptrate or maybe an Ephydrid?

Something similar was called Lispe, wasn't it? Muscidae.

I think it may have been one of Nikita's Thai flies...

If the fly was from Europe I'd say Lispe for sure.

Xespok's Lispe is a female; in this genus (as in most flies) the females lack most of the modifications seen in males. The abdominal pattern can be quite different for males and females in this genus.

Just returned from the annual weekend meeting of Finnish (amateur) entomologists. Our small diptera group met for exchange of ideas and material, other entomologists were bombarded with pro-fly propaganda, strategic plans for the season were formulated, old stories swapped over dinner, windowsills checked for 'samples', the saunabath tested, CoolCoolCool

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
