I have been given the names for these flies before, but lost their names. Now that I am updating my webpages I hope someone can help me again. Sorry about that!

I also send this fly on forum, but alas, no reply so far. So I'll wait the reply on your question too. My guess is some Scatophagidae.

These flies are Sciomyzidae. I think they belong to the genus Tetanocera, but that is as far as I can get with the identification.

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
