This only 3 mm long Sphaerocerid from our house yesterday (Ostwestfalen/Germany) was very "glamourful" for that family Cool, so I have a little hope that it can be identified more closely. Can it? Thanks!

O'd say it's not a Sphaeroceridae, maybe Chloropidae?...

Oh... I was so tied upon Sphaeroceridae, that I didn't take others into account. Thanks!

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
