Female Spelobia, not always the easiest to do, even with a specimen...

If I head to make a guess, it would be Spelobia manicata.

Middle leg, first tarsal segment longer than second one. Wing a bit darkened.
But I have to admit, that this is most certainly not a solid identification :-)

It is a female of Spelobia nana, you can see most of the relevant setae on the mid tibia in the second image.

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
