It look very much like a Tephritis crepidis, but this species is not recorded in Sweden.

Tankyou Ben, crepidis and dilacerata are very similar.

I had doubts about hyoscyami / dilacerata (it is somewhere in between dark hyoscyami and light dilacerata, but the small hyaline dot in the apical part of cell r1 clearly shows it is dilacerata, so Ben is right!

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
