Hello all,

in my opinion this ca. 1 cm-fly could be a male of Anasimyia contracta.
Pictures took at 20.06.2009 in Halver (North Rhine-Westphalia/Germany).
I've found it in the near of a little pond (in a garden), sitting on a stone.

Am I right?

Difficult to choose between A. contracta and A. transfuga.

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
