This was a very small fly that was active very early during the year. I have no clue what this could be.

Other views of this and other flies are on my web pages at .

A leafminer fly (Agromyzidae). The wing venation points towards genus Phytomyza with more than 300 species described from Europe alone.

This fly was found invariably on cabbage or related cruciferous plants. I think this one is a cosmopoiitan pest species. Does this give any clue?

After some google search there seems to be a well-researched cosmopolitan Phytomyza sp indeed, Phytomyza rufipes. Can someone confirm that?

I have not found usable images on the net unfortunately using Phytomyza rufipes or cabbage leaf miner as keywords.

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
