Hi All,

Is this a Chaoboridae please ? the picture was taken this evening at a water butt in my Garden in Surrey Southern England and when disturbed it moved to the Greenhouse window. The fly was approximately 10 - 12mm long.

Regards Chas

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
