Hello! This was recently found by Karcza Zsolt in Hungary. I have never seen something like this.
This is a male of a Therioplectes species. In Hungary, gigas is present. But in this specimen, hairs on the face are yellowish, whitish and not black. And it is a bit differs from gigas. So I think that this is maybe a Therioplectes tunicatus. What do you think? Could you help me please?

Pretty interesting. I dont have access to my library now, check my review in Studia Dipterologica. You might be right.

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
