This is a male horse fly. You may have to wait for when Theo is around to get a further identification. From our European perspective, the pattern on the eyes is very distinctive but maybe there are heaps of Japanese species with similar pattern.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I cannot identify this beautiful specimen based on this picture. My knowledge of the Japanese fauna is insufficient.
So I really would need the specimen itself.

Thnaks for your help.

Can you suggest Genus? This was a very small fly for a Tabanidae.

If you still have the specimen:

Does it have functional ocelli on the vertex ?
Are there any spurs on hind tibiae ?

Otherwise, I dare not even suggest a subfamily ?

It might in Chrysopsinae, but then again, it might be near Atylotus in Tabaninae.

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
