I found this putative Dicranomyia fly on a sheet trap in my garden IN N Netherlands. Its vein pattern strongly ressembles Diacranomyia, but I highlight the strange pattern. It is something else?

If the extra crossvein is only in one wing, ignore 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
