A Chloropid, it seems. A good clue it the rather large ocellar triangle.

Looks rather like a Meromyza species - very difficult to identify females. Sad

I have just found a rather similar fly here in Germany today. It was only 3 mm long. Is this also Meromyza? Thanks!

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
