With help from the thred H.albitarsis I have identified the attached as a Rhamphoromyia Sp. I'll put my head on the block and say I suspect it is R.sulcata but would be grateful for any advice.

It is a risky business to say anything about themales of species of the Rhamphomyia sulcata group without havinf the possibility to see the genitalia. Still, I think this may well be R. cinerascens (in Britain generally called subcinerascens but I have seen no true constant differences as yet).

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
