I think it is Odinia sp. Do you have the specimen collected or at least some additional photos?

Yes, it's collected already. Do I have to take any particular shot to identify it?

A side view would show more details and, I hope, confirm the suggested generic identification. I think that it is no species known from central Europe; you should ask for eventual identification a local dipterist (perhaps Carles-Tolr√°), who would study the specimen, not only photos.

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
