Hello! Adam Hegedus found this I think Philipomyia in Hungary, 2022.06.20. Please, can you help me which species is this? I know that there are two species in Hungary in this genus graeca and aprica, but I’m not sure what is the difference between them.

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
