These flies sunbathed yesterday here in Ostwestfalen/Germany on a tree trunk on a meadow. Are they Musca autumnalis?

Also on that trunk several other possible Muscidae. Can this one be Polietes sp.? Thanks in advance for any hints!

Best regards,

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
