this 2 - 3 mm fly was found on June 6, 2022 beside our garden pond with Juncus in Hannover, Germany. Could it be Cerodontha luctuosa?

Thanks a lot for an answer!

Agromyzidae: Cerodontha (Dizygomyza) spec., male, further identification impossible. The enlarged 3rd antennal segment is present only in males of the subgenus Dizygomyza.

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
