Platystoma it is, and it recalls P. lugubre (basitarsi red), but I don't know the Bulgarian species. The key https://img1.wsim...3414328806 asks for many characters that are not visible in the pictures - sorry! If Valery can't help, there is no chance...

Yes, Claudia is right: Platystoma lugubre.

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
