I used Mikes Insect key on Dolichopodidae, and wonder whether this female may be Sciapus pallens, on the basis of the wide face and yellowish antennae except for the dark tip and dorsal side. Would that be 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
