certainly Cylindrotomatidae, but I can't remember which one. However there are only 4 species possible (I think) and the can be identified by their abdominal prolongations.

Thank you very much. According to the checklist of the Czech republic there realy only 4 species possible, but according to some public photos like these ( it must be genus Diogma and there is only one Diogma in the CR - Diogma glabrata.

Phalacrocera replicata : long forked abdominal processes; Dark brown or lighter dorsally, whitish ventrally and between the segments (semi-aquatic mosses)
Cylindrotoma distinctissima: short body processes withouth teeth at the anterior margin; light green. darker dorsally (terrestrial)
Diogma glabrata: short body processes with 1-2 teeth at the anterior margin; green with brown or black markings (terrestrial)
Triogma trisulcata: short body processes with 3-4 teeth at the anterior margin; dark brown or brownish green, lighter ventrally with darker markings along dorsum (semi-aquatic mosses).
I have added the drawings from Brindle (1967) with this message
So Diogma glabrata is o.k.

Nice photo BTW, may I suggest adding your photo to the Diptera gallery.

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
