Choerades is indeed the correct genus. Check Ch. marginata/femorata.

I would say it's Ch. fimbriatus. Determination based on characteristic stripes of yellow hair on posterior part of tergites, tibiae with dominance of yellow hairs, and visible long protruding hairs on apical part of male genitalia.

and scapus approx. twice as long as pedicellus confirms C. fimbriata, too.

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
