Could you please help me to identify with these pictures ?

Maybe Macropelopia nebulosa ?

Found yesterday at Saint-Quentin-en-Tourmont (Somme, France)

Thanks !

Tanypodinae. I don't know species. The wing pattern of your fly does resemble M. nebulosa.

I would agree that M. nebulosa is the most likely 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
