Hello,

I photographed this fly near Torri del Vajolet (TN), Italy, 2400m a.s.l. on August 6th 2023. I think it is a Dolichopodidae, but is it possible to identify its genus or species from these photos?

Thank you in advance,
Emanuele

Not Medetera. Looks like female of Diostracus. Alps have 3 species.

Thank you both for your comments. Yesterday I had some problems while uploading the second photo, I hope it's displayed correctly now, I wonder if it's possible to say something about the species.

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
