I don't know if the feathery antennae on this small (about 3mm) fly are enough of a giveaway to ID it? Taken last week near the base of an Oak Tree in Richmond Pk in SW London.

Fine picture. Fine antennas.

The general attitude is Chironomidae, but I'm only an amateur.

Yes thanks for your help Brian. I'm sure Pierred has the right family but so far I have not found a midge with this type of regal plumage.

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
