Acrocera orbiculus seems good after some googling but I really would appreciate an expert's opinion! Also, I'm curious to know weather this species lacks a proboscis? I found a thread by jorgemotalmeida that suggests this: https://diptera.i...rowstart=0

Many thanks,

John

Acrocera is correct, but it is very yellow.
Need to check this

OK, the wing venation points to Acrocera orbiculus.
It is a female, by genitalia and dark scutellum.

Very good, thanks for confirming! Any idea wether this species has a proboscis or not?

It is not a black and white question. The proboscis is strongly reduced.

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
