It seems I haven't photographed this one before. On young leaves of Apiaceae, edge of forest. Size 2 mm.

Two close-ups of the head.

I've also got a bigger specimen (2.5 to 3 mm) which is very similar but more vividly coloured, with distinct brown median stripe on reddish prosternum (reaching scutum) and shiny-black tip of abdomen. No live pix, though.

Antennae with one ventral branch only and acrostichal setae in two rows -> indeed pallida.

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
