I think this is Metopia sp. because of the white forehead.

Am I completely wrong? Thanks in advance.

No Pierre,

You are completely right !
It is a male of Metopia in the argyrocephala-group.
I doubt whether it really is argyrocephala, rondaniana or even thernovae are more likely, but there is no way to be sure based on this picture.

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
