I did not hear of the name 'Stout fly' before, so I cannot confirm that, but it looks like a member of the Coenomyiinae, a subfamily of the Xylophagidae.

Hmm. I'd say it is a black fly (Simuliidae).

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
