Hi All,
Any suggestions for the family these two belong to? They were part of a swarm under a tree, near a marshy area.

Thanks Paul. These were obviously the "friendly" type, as they did not bother biting, unless it was a male swarm of course!

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
