I see lots of male Anthomyiidae on the railing. This is one of them. Can he be given a name?

Thanks!

Lars, jizz, my test, for Delia platura/florilega.
To be sure, you have to find image with visible chaetotaxy of t3 - platura/florilega both has a full row of pv of same lenth all tibia along (about 20 setae).

Thanks Nikita. I will keep that in mind. Forgive me for asking, but if "platura/florilega both has a full row of pv of same lenth all tibia along (about 20 setae)" how do you tell them apart?

D.florilega has a nice long dorsal hairs on mid basytarsus.
Also florilega is generally smaller. Also florilega seems to my a summer fly, platura is whole year fly, but especially common in spring.

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
