Hello all !
I think it is Eustalomyia festiva. A largish fly (10 mm).

Am I right ?

This beautiful hypothesis will not be slain by an ugly fact as Eustalomyia festiva is correct!

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
