Hello everyone,

is it possible to identify this Chrysotoxum down to the species? The shooting angle is unfavorable, but I only have this one picture. I took the picture on 08/18/23 in the Black Forest, south-west Germany.

Greetings Siggi

Hi Siggi, I'm pretty sure it's a female Chrysotoxum arcuatum.
Greetings, Eric Kloeckner

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
