Hello,

I photographed these flies on Sargassum on the shore in Kendwa, Zanzibar (Tanzania), on February 21st 2023. I think they may be Ephydridae, but I'm not completely sure. Is it possible to identify their genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
Emanuele

Very long anal vein excludes Ephydridae. Perhaps a Scaptodrosophila.

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
