Hello diptera-reader,

Last week I saw this kind of diptera on mushrooms in the Amsterdam woodforest.
I like to know what kind of diptera this is..
Perhaps Phaonia pallida? (red/orange coloured body) or is this fly(the head&body) too smalll for Phaonia species.
Size: 8-10 mm

I can't find information about occuration of Phaonia pallida in the Netherlands, is it a common fly?

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
