Maybe Chamaepsila pallida.
Best wishes, Niels-Jan Dek

According to a recent key I saw, pallida should have yellow tergites. This then is another species. Dick, if you kept the specimen, please, send it to me so I can check for the correct name for this species.

Hello to all,
In fact it is not possible that it is Cha. pallida because of the black abdominal tergites (yellow for pallida). It is rather Cha. andreji.

A taxonomic question:
In GBIF (= Systema Dipterorum) it is genus Psila, in fauna-eu as well as here in the forum it is Chamaepsila pallida. Is there a current widely accepted agreement, also which species are remaining in genus Psila?
Cheers, Lorin

Yes, there is a big problem with the taxonomy of this family at the European level: GBIF and Fauna europaea are absolutely not updated and do not include at all the latest publications on this subject. It is the same problem for taxa to be added in Inaturalist nowadays, they have to be systematically reclassified as Chamaepsila and not as Psila, it is very annoying!
The taxonomy of this family must follow Shatalkin & Mertz, 2010 (The Psilidae (Diptera, Acalyptrata) of Switzerland, with description of two new species from Central Europe. Revue Suisse de Zoologie, 117 (4), 771–800) and Shatalkin, 2021 (in Kirk-Spriggs, A.H. & Sinclair, B.J. (eds). 2021. Manual of Afrotropical Diptera. Volume 3. Brachycera—Cyclorrhapha, excluding Calyptratae. Suricata 8. South African National Biodiversity Institute, Pretoria; pp. 1545–1556.)

Actually, just after I wrote this question, I was forwarded towards Mertz's publication and subsequently switched the genera within the iNat taxonomy. Please flag any further taxa that should not be in Psila anymore, and I will have a look at it

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
