Northern Germany, Schleswig-Holstein, Neu-Lankau near Mölln, uncultivated meadow right by the Elbe-Lübeck-Canel, at Heracleum sphondylium, Outsidephotos: kuv, 7th of July 2022. In the Gallery I found similar "Tachinidae > Blondelia nigripes" - is that right? Please help to get the ID.

Hi Kuv, I think it's a Linnaemya cf. picta.

The eyes are hairy. Blondelia species have bare eyes. Linnaemya?

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
