Hi Carnota,

A well known error. It's not a Tephritid but a Sciomyzid: Trypetoptera punctulata. The first name meaning 'with the wing of a Trypetid (old name for Tephritid)', so you're not the only one making thisslight mistake. I get them all the time as supposed Tephritids.

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
