Close, but not quite. The family is Pallopteridae, a small family closely related to Tephritidae. Some Pallopterids are not easy to tell apart, but the dark edge of the wing makes identification easy in this case: Palloptera saltuum

This species is very common in humid broadleaved forests. The body color of saltuum is particularly variable, from pale yellow to entirely black.

Actually in this species there is sexual dimorfism. The male and female looking rather different in colouration.

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
