The ID seems to my clear.
But I've got letter from Chris Raper that this sp. absent in UK and regarded as rather sothern. And realy in Netherlands checklist Ectophasia crassipennis only recently added by Theo Zeegers.
So information of it presence as north as North Moscow region and as late as october (not a single fly) may be of some use. If not - the fly is pretty anyway.

Dear NIkita,

You are quite right. For some reason I don't know (warm summers ?) E. crassipennis occurs much more north in eastern Europe. I have seen it myself from Poland and Estonia, the last locality being about on the same latitude as Moscow.
Nice picture.

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
