Micropezidae. Many species of subfamily Taeniapterinae have such wing markings.

Many thanks! I've found Taeniaptera trivittata as a very good match, including the annulations in legs. It can be assumed to be this species?

That species is North American. It has a close relative T. lasciva in the tropics. The general color pattern, with multiple wing bands and pale bands on the hind femora, is found in other genera 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
