Many Thanks to Nikita and to A. Shatalkin. Smile
The species is not present in France according to Fauna Europaea (but present in Belgium, Switzerland, Germany). Once again a good find by Edith. Smile

Greetings.
Stephane.

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
