Hi everyone! Hope you are having a great time. I have this fly that was seeking nectar over Hyalis argentea, in Neuquén, Argentina. It was identify in a forum as family Nemestrinidae. I 'd like to reach the genus ID.

I think your fly will be in the following paper. I do not have a copy.

Bernardi, N. 1977. A tribo Hyrmophlaebini (Diptera, Nemestridae, Hirmoneurinae), com treze espécies novas da América do Sul. Papéis Avulsos de Zoologia 30(16): 239–259.

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
