Sadly, this one was collected by a friend and he didn't know locality of capture. But it's from north-east Spain at medium altitude.
Any idea of the species?

Thanks a lot Roger and Valery! There is any external difference between Ch. jaceae and Ch. acrolophi that I can try to photograph in the specimen?

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
