It is a colourful fly, I guess it is not a Scatophaga stercoaria. Am I right? Could it identify?

I think this is probably Scathophaga lutaria, because of the dark margins to the tergites, but I can't really see enough to be certain.

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
