THis was a small fly with a rather long wing. I am not sure what family this is, maybe Asteiidae or Anthomyzidae, but could be something else as well.

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
