An old photo taken in May in Zhejiang China. Tiny, around 3mm in body length. Could it be a Milichiidae or another memeber of Carnoidea? Or Ephydroidea, rather? Thanks!

With reduced setae of head and mesonotum it looks to me as Chloropidae.

Great! Thank you! Chloropidae might be the family I was looking for. TumbsUp

Cool! Thank you! Polyodaspis looks promising. Only two species are recorded from China. They're P. ferruginea and P. chinensis both with their type localities in Fujian which is neighboring Zhejiang. So this chloropid could be one of them.

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
