Syrphus sp. male, I cant see for sure if the eyes are hairy. If the eyes are hairy than it would be S. torvus.

Agree with Jonne. Probably torvus, but not enough details to be sure.

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
