the size of these two flies was about 3 mm. They were in a Hedera helix hedge.

Best regards,

Hello Eric,

yes, that it is, and I should have known it. At least I saw two of them mating two years ago in Mülheim and then was able to identify the species...

Thank you!

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
