are these two flies tachinids, and are they the same? Same size and location, but they seem to differ in hue. The first I collected but the second one escaped.

Possibly Nemorilla again (male & female)? Do you have more photos, showing the front half?

The first one looks interesting.
It has bare eyes (or is this me again ?) and erect scutellar bristles. Given the relative narrow frons and the erect hairs on tergites, Lydella stabulans comes to mind (?)

Is easy to check on the collected male: it should have pretty obvious weird circles of short stubby hairs on the ventral side of tergite 4 (so turn it upside down).

Second could indeed be the female L. stabulans

Let me know !

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
