Some authors do not accept both species and placed luteolus as a synonym to laetus. Krivosheina (2008) published paper on this species group and according to her sentences and your picture and believe it is C. laetus.

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
