Looks like Thelaira sp. (Tachinidae) - large eyes, long legs. As for the species ... I'm not willing to commit Wink

Given the location, Ruurlo, I have no doubt that it is Thelaira nigripes.
But I do agree that is cheating.

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
