Aquatic larvae from Ecuador. Found in high and mid low land. The two siphons make me wonder if it´s a Psychoda.

Welcome to there is no photo attached. Please be aware of the size of the photo, no spaces in the name and preferable Jpeg. Two siphons are unlike Psychodidae. Perhaps Scatopsidae?

My mistake on the photo´s name, first post. I edited my post with the photo now. T
Thank you for the information; indeed I checked in a key and it does look much more like a Scatopsidae with 2 siphons.

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
