Thank you Jan.

I supposed it was Cantharidae, but I couldn't find anything similar. I have checked Metacantharis on the web, but I have found another genera more similar, Boveycantharis, although there are very little photographs.

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
