Hi,

Unfortunately I only have bad pictures. Can the genus or species of this fly still be determined?

Greetings,
Marion

I would think Spelobia; there are a few with yellow faces so not easy from this, if the thorax is as shiny as it seems then maybe S. belanica? That is a just a thought, we really need to see the setae on the mid tibia to be more certain.

Thanks, daveb21.
I looked again for the pictures. The setae on the mid tibia are not visible. The thorax was grey.

Greetings, Marion

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
