Found this one in Cults, Aberdeen in July 2022. Very strong orange/red wing interference pattern when seen flying about in the shade. Bicellaria sp. maybe?

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
