I photographed this fly in Stavel (TN), Italy, 1900m a.s.l. on August 9th 2020. I think it is a Scathophagidae (maybe genus Cordilura?), but is it possible to identify it from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
ESant attached the following image:

Norellisoma, if I see correctly stout setae on fore tibia.

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
