thank you Nikita,

is possible to narrow this at species level? you need some part to be bigger in the photo (except genitalia)? or maybe some info about habitat can be used?

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
