Hello!

When I found this fly on March 21 among many Muscidae and Calliphoridae sucking juices on an freshly cut tree trunk I thought of some kind of Scatophagidae, but in another forum someone told me it could be a syrphid of the genus Brachyopa. Is he right? Thanks in advance!

It is a species of Heleomyzidae, I think.

Hello Juergen,
As in a lot times, Paul beat me to it and was just a click faster!Wink
But indeed, I want to confirm that this is surely NOT a Brachyopa sp.
In this picture the best characteristic is the shape and color of the head, which is different in Brachyopa!
Look for example at: http://perso.wanadoo.fr/cyrille.dussaix/Brachyopa_pilosa/B.pilosa-illus.htma
Most of the Brachyopa's have a distinct snout which is not there in this picture!
So I support Paul's idea of it being a species of Heleomyzidae!

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
