On old oak stump in old-growth broadleaf forest, Jægerspris Nordskov, Denmark, 20 July 2022. Looks like a dung fly to me, but I cannot find any species of that family with darktipped femora like this one.

Pherbellia annulipes, I think: black rings on mid and hind femur and tibia - wings without dark spots (P. nana)
from De Nederlandse Slakkendoders by Aat Barendregt.

Thank you alle, good people. While the last replies ticked in, I went though Steven Falk's albums with Pherbellia spp., and the characters mentioned by Eric are indeed quite obvious. :-)

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
