Hello everyone !!!

On 2023-05-06, I could picture this specimen which could be an Epistrophe female.
Is it possible to ID ?

I have no picture of the face ... but scutellum seems to have yellow setae and abdomen seems very special ...

Thank you for reading and or commenting !

Hello Didier, it's difficult without a look at the face, but I think it's probably the female Epistrophe melanostoma (hind tarsus not completely dark, scutellum yellow haired, rather broad build).
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
