Hi I was wondering if someone could help with two id's, they may not even be in diptera, but any help or even direction would be greatly appreciated.....This odd looking one has a concave and pointed abdomen, it kinda reminds me of the shape of a leaf, long antennae, front legs more robust....

The one you described sounds like it may be a true bug, maybe one of the Reduviidae or Coreidae. But like Jan Willem said, see if you can attach images.

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
